FALLUJAH — Iraqi government forces have gained control of most of the city of Fallujah, the country's Prime Minister has said; while Iraqi troops have regained control over about 80% of the city, ISIS militants remain concentrated in four pockets north of the city, and in the southern and south-western countryside, confirms commander in chief of the Fallujah liberation operation today, Thursday.

Thousands of trapped residents took advantage of the militants' retreat, with some swimming across the Euphrates River to safety.
