27 July 2014

Military operations have continued between last night and this afternoon in both Al-Garma and Fallujah. Shelling has also continued of districts within the two urban centers. Gunmen are still in control and the military is continuing with its operations. There have been casualties among the gunmen but it is mostly the civilians that are falling victims. Operations have also included Amiriyat Al-Fallujah where a car bomb was detonated yesterday without causing any casualties. The car was heading to Fallujah to attack a police station but the gunmen were repelled, regroup, and withdrew out of Amiriyat Al-Fallujah.

Tomorrow is the first day of the Eid Al-Fitr, but people appear to be at a loss and their faces show their fear, and the streets are devoid of the traditional decorations and lighting in Ramadi and Fallujah. The Eid is coming amid the surprise and dismay of the population here.
