Iraqi forces prepare for final Tikrit battle



Iraqi forces, backed by volunteers, are bracing for the final phase of the liberation of the strategic city of Tikrit, the capital of Salahuddin province. But, the battle needs a thorough study and planning to minimize civilian casualties.

Reporting from the Iraqi capital Baghdad, Rahshan Saglam says field commanders know that the ISIL terrorists will use civilians as human shield.
