VIDEO: Watch Iraqi Army Battle IS for Tikrit

Iraqi Army soldiers clashed with IS militants in the Oja neighborhood of Tikrit, north of Baghdad on Wednesday. Fighting with the help of the Shiite Abu al-Fadel al-Abbas brigade, the Iraqi Army launched an assault against IS to retake Tikrit, the largest city of Salahuddine province.

IS fighters seized control of Tikrit in mid June. The assault was repelled by strong ISIS defenses, leading Iraqi Army forces and the Abu al-Fadel al-Abbas brigade to retreat.
