Iraq's prime minister announced late Sunday that military forces are working to retake the ISIS-held city of Fallujah.
In a message shared on state TV, he reportedly instructed residents to leave the city before the operation and said security forces would ensure a safe passage.
The city of Fallujah, which is located about 40 miles west of Baghdad, has been under ISIS control since January 2014.
