Baghdad: The United Nation (UN) on Tuesday said it feared for the security of almost 10,000 families trapped in Fallujah – Iraqi province of Al Anbar – as the forces of Iraq pressed in to retake the city from ISIS.

Ferocious combating has shrouded Fallujah since the military of Iraq on Monday took out an offensive to reclaim the province from the terror group.

The air force of Iraq has air-dropped numerous leaflets on the city, instructing residents to flee from the clutches of ISIS. They have been offered passage through safe corridors to camps outside the city.

The government has also set up a hotline for endangered residents to call or text in case they require evacuation.

Highlights:

  • ISIS is preventing the residents from leaving the province ahead of the government offensive.
  • Well-nigh 80 families have already succeeded to flee while some of them died on the way.
