Earlier in the day, Fallujah city sources told Sputnik that the Iraqi military continues to move through the city of Fallujah and was able to block Daesh militants who were attempting to flee the city on boats along the Euphrates River.
Last week, Iraqi military and Shiite militia with the support of the international coalition have launched the military operation to liberate the city 40 miles west of Baghdad. On Sunday, according to reports, these forces took control of almost all entrances to Fallujah.
Since 2014, Iraqi city of Fallujah has been controlled by Daesh terrorist group. Before the war, the city was one of the country's biggest with population of 350,000 people.
