Battle for Tikrit in pictures

(Iraq) Approximately 400 ISIS terrorists are holding 30,000 Iraqi/Iranian soldiers at bay in the city of Tikrit. So stubborn has their defence been, that the Iraqi Government has asked the US to use their superior air targeting capabilities in which to soften up the ISIS defensive positions,  However in a perfect example of why 400 idiots can keep 30,000 men at bay, the Shia militia men who are supporting the Iraqi government have refused to fight whilst the Americans are helping them. Allegations are now being spread that the US has taken out 2 Iranian soldiers something both the Americans and Iraqi governments are denying Anyway here is a video and a few photos of the current Tikrit battle front:
