Video shows soldiers from the Iraqi Army with remaining Shiite militias clash with ISIS as they advance into Tikrit, raise Iraqi flag over former ISIS strongholds. Many Shiite militias had refused to participate in the assault after the intervention of the US in the campaign.

Iraq’s leader, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, announced that his forces had recaptured the strategic city of Tikrit on Tuesday March 30, 2015. The official Iraqiya television station published a headline quoting the PM's words: “Tikrit has fallen to us.”
Nonetheless, local sources in Tikrit say that ISIS still controls many parts of the city and that heavy fighting is still going on.
