Hundreds flee Falluja during Iraqi offensive

Since Friday, Iraqi soilders have been invading Falluja to drive ISIS out of the city causing hundreds of citizens to flee from the area. Unfortunately an estimated 50,000 residents are still caught in the city, putting them in extreme risk between the ISIS and Iraqi military bombardment.

As more and more residents are being executed from refusing to join the extremists, the Prime minister of Iraq and others are working on safe escape routes in the city. For any family that is in immediate trouble has been told to raise a white flag over their house if they are indeed trapped.
