Iraqi forces get ready to retake city of Fallujah

(Iraq) After two years of ISIS occupation, the fight to retake the city of Fallujah has begun. On the Iraqi side can be found the 1st, 6th, 4th and 17th Iraqi army divisions these are supported by thousands of Shiite militiamen from the Badr Organization and Kataib Hezbollah. On the other a few hundred ISIS idiots who (and I will be brutally honest here) have shown that they are much better soldiers than the thousands of Iraqi soldiers facing them.

With the advance of Iraqi forces right up to the front door of the city, the Iraqi president has signalled a new phase in the fight against ISIS:
“We will tear down the black banners of the strangers who kidnapped the city,the clock of Fallujah liberation has rung, and the final victory is close.”
However words are cheap and in order to carry out the above , Iraqi forces have been softening up the opposition before they go in:

I don't think that the Iraqi forces are expecting an easy time.
