The Iraqi government has launched a military operation to retake the city of Fallujah, which has been under the control of Islamic State militants for more than two years. The city, located 65 kilometers east of the capital, Baghdad, has been a jihadist stronghold longer than any other city in Iraq or Syria. Zlatica Hoke says U.S. and British officials are confident Falluja will be recaptured.
