APTOPIX The Things They Carried Photo Gallery

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.” A senior Iraqi commander declared that the city of Fallujah was "fully liberated" from Islamic State group militants on Sunday, June 26, 2016 after a more than monthlong military operation.
