Iraq stalls Falluja assault to protect civilians | Reuters

SOUTHERN OUTSKIRTS OF FALLUJA, Iraq Iraq has delayed its assault on the city of Falluja because of fears for the safety of civilians, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Wednesday, as his forces halted at the city's edge in the face of ferocious resistance from Islamic State fighters. Abadi's decision to halt, two days after elite Iraqi troops poured into the city's rural southern outskirts, postpones what was expected to be one of the biggest battles ever fought against Islamic State. #United States #India #Environment #Middle East #science #crisis #city

Last summer Misrata brigades withdrew from Sirte and Islamic State took full control there. #India #science #Africa #Argentina #city
