Shiite militias are expected to engage with DAESH militants to recapture Iraqi cities. However, it has been reported that militias have been committing atrocities against Sunni civilians. Fallujah has become a battlefield for DAESH and Shiite militias fighting alongside Iraqi forces. Amid the fierce battles, Fallujah residents are suffering from both the presence of DAESH militants and Shiite militias. According to recent reports, hundreds of people died and thousands left their homes. Although the Iraqi government and its allies are expected to help those fleeing the violence, Shiite militias appear to be a new threat. A Human Rights Watch (HRW) report released last week documented the militias arbitrarily detaining, torturing and killing civilians.The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) condemned the militias. As abuses have become apparent, the Iraqi government launched an investigation into rights abuses and arrested some Shiite militants.
