In this Wednesday, June 8, 2016 photo, 1st Sgt. Malik Jaber, from Iraq’s elite counterterrorism forces wears green cloth from the revered Imam Abbas shrine on his body armor, at a front line position on the southern edge of Fallujah, Iraq. He says he credits the holy object with saving his life when the Special Forces were fighting Islamic State militants in Beiji, the central Iraqi town that is also home to a key oil refinery. “This time it will keep me safe again,” Jaber said, “God willing.” (AP Photo/Maya Alleruzzo)
