    Watch live broadcast from the frontline as the Iraqi army advances into Daesh-held Fallujah in Iraq.

    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.

    Shiite militia, fighting Daesh in the Iraqi city of Fallujah, has discovered network of the tunnels used by extremists in the suburbs of the city, the al-Hashd al-Shaabi group told RIA Novosti on Monday.

    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.
