U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Stuart Jones praised the valiant Iraqi Security Forces for their recent successes in Fallujah. The progress made in Fallujah, the first city in Iraq to have been taken by Da’esh, once again demonstrates the Iraqi Security Forces’ ability to defeat Da’esh on the battlefield. The United States is proud to have led International Coalition efforts in support of the Iraqi Security Forces’ victories, including robust airstrikes in Fallujah. The United States will continue to provide military assistance to Iraq to defeat Da’esh and humanitarian assistance to help those who have been displaced.
