6/25/2016 Fallujah, Iraq  Iraqi Special Forces advanced into the al-Jolan district of Fallujah, as smoke from airstrikes and artillery rose in the background.  Iraqi Security Forces began their push on the ISIS held city of Fallujah on May 23, and have taken back much of the city. As of Wednesday, June 25, Iraqi Security forces had taken back much of the southern and central districts of the city, but ISIS remains in the north western district of the city, known as al-Jolan. The offensive has sent tens of thousands of residents fleeing into the scorching deserts of Anbar province seeking shelter. The Iraqi government has been strict about not allowing many of them to travel the relatively short distance to Baghdad, and has detained many of the men considered to be of "military age," in some cases, as young as 12 years old. Many of the men have been brought to "screening centers" run by the government where families fear their loved ones are being tortured or worse.
