A soldier from Iraq’s elite counterterrorism forces smokes a water pipe in an unfinished apartment building serving as a battle position as special forces enter the nearby Shuhada neighborhood in Islamic State-held Fallujah, Iraq, Wednesday, June 8, 2016. The operation to retake Fallujah is expected to be one of the most difficult yet; this city in Iraq’s western Anbar province is symbolically important to the militant group and has been a bastion of support for anti-government militants since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
