BAGHDAD — A senior Iraqi commander declared that the city of Fallujah was “fully liberated” from ISIS militants on Sunday, after a more than month-long military operation.

Iraqi troops have entered the northwestern al-Julan neighborhood, the last area of Fallujah to remain under ISIS control, the head of the counterterrorism forces in the operation, Lt. Gen. Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi, told The Associated Press.
