      The Islamists are still strong enough, and show their teeth, sorry, of course, for the dead pilots, but they died for a just cause.

        From the text of the article
        "The militants in Fallujah are in a critical situation, some warlords fled from the besieged city to other areas. "

        When commanders flee the battlefield, the liquidation of the remaining militants is, in effect, accelerated. This is already good.

        A pity for the dead pilots! His bright folk memory.

    Fallujah is between Baghdad and Ramadi - normally the Iraqis cleaned up the latter so that the Ishilians knock down helicopters. What kind of offensive on Mosul can we talk about
