FALLUJA, Iraq, July 4 – A highway overpass in central Falluja, from which Daesh militants hanged a captured Iraqi soldier last year, bears the marks of the city’s latest victors, including a slogan scrawled in green spray paint: “The state of (Imam) Hussein remains.”

The overtly Shi’ite Muslim phrase, which appears to mimic Daesh’s own “Remain and Extend” motto, was left a week ago by one of the Shi’ite militiamen who helped drive Daesh from the Sunni city it captured in January 2014.

With combat over, the militias are staying on, brushing up against army, police and counter-terrorism forces which have each staked out positions across Falluja, heavily damaged by the fighting and now almost completely empty.

The militias’ continued presence in Falluja and their pledges to remain for an undefined period of time raise the possibility that nearly 300,000 displaced Sunnis may not feel safe returning home anytime soon.

Keen to avoid a repeat of systematic looting, blamed on militias, after the recovery of cities like Tikrit and Baiji last year, regular government forces and militia leaders themselves say they have managed to limit abuses in Falluja to a few isolated cases.

The government said it had arrested several perpetrators, including those suspected in the summary execution of dozens of fleeing residents.

But government efforts to keep the militias to outlying areas of Falluja have failed, part of continuing tensions over the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF), a coalition of mostly Shi’ite militias that report to Iraq’s Shi’ite Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi but are trained and armed by Iran.

Sunni politicians say what happened in Falluja shows the militias should be completely barred from a planned offensive on Mosul, the most important Daesh bastion remaining in Iraq which the authorities want to retake this year.

LOOTING, ARSON

Before the military assault began on May 23, Iraqi officials had said the militias would be kept outside Falluja for fear of aggravating sectarian tensions with Sunni residents. The militias initially indicated they would cooperate.

But by mid-June, their fighters appeared on the battlefield and commanders bragged about their important contributions. Prime Minister Abadi later praised their role in the offensive, which was declared over on June 26.

A government spokesman said the forces deployed in Falluja are clearing it from mines and explosives and restoring basic services so that the population can return under the supervision of the local police that will take over the city.

“When the city is secured, the forces will leave,” he said, referring to the units that don’t belong to the city, without mentioning specifically the Shi’ite paramilitary.

“Popular Mobilization is part of the security forces and they are taking part in the military operations according to the plan set by the commander in chief of the armed forces,” the spokesman added, referring to Abadi.

The militias were still present last week during several Reuters visits to Falluja, where plumes of dark black smoke billowed into the sky.

Two sources from the elite counter-terrorism service (CTS) said looting and arson had followed the end of combat. One of them blamed the PMF and showed Reuters three militiamen caught in the act.

At least two white pick-up trucks inside Falluja on Thursday were carrying what appeared to be washing machines and other home appliances, covered with blankets, but Reuters could not verify they had been stolen.

Many roads in the zone controlled by CTS have been blocked off with rubble and burnt-out cars. The second source said the barriers, which went up after Daesh was routed, were meant to block other Iraqi forces.

“We do that to prevent any looting or violations in our area of operations,” he said.

Security forces prevented a Reuters team touring Falluja on Thursday from approaching a large fire in a western district overlooking the Euphrates river.

Such fires were set by Daesh militants to provide cover from airstrikes as they fled, many officials say, but some acknowledged pro-government forces are also partly to blame.

A spokesman for the Badr Organisation, one of the largest PMF factions, denounced the acts as isolated incidents.

“The (Popular) Mobilisation refuses these acts and will punish all those who those proven to have committed them,” said Karim al-Nuri, adding that four or five PMF members had already been arrested.

FOR HOW LONG?

Abu Mahdi al-Mohandis, one of the PMF leaders and head of Kataib Hezbollah, a constituent militia, last week pledged his fighters would not leave their positions inside Falluja.

“The (Popular) Mobilisation will continue to hold its ground in every area. The armed forces still need the Popular Mobilisation,” he said in an interview posted online on June 26.

Nuri, the Badr spokesman, said the PMF would leave “as soon as security returns”, but could not specify how long that might take. The militias have remained in many other areas retaken from Daesh, including predominately Sunni cities like Tikrit and Samarra.

Given Falluja’s record of militancy, the threat of Daesh attempting to return is not unrealistic but a long-term presence of Shi’ite forces could prove destabilising.

The city emerged as the main bastion of the Sunni insurgency after the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 and swiftly became an al Qaeda stronghold. U.S. forces that toppled Saddam Hussein suffered heavy losses there in two battles in 2004.

More than a decade later, Falluja is seen by many Iraqis as an irredeemable bulwark of Sunni unrest.

After declaring victory, the operation’s field commander Lieutenant-general Abdul Wahab al-Saidi said the entire southern industrial district should be sealed off because, according to him, Daesh used it to assemble car bombs sent to Baghdad.

However, bombings have continued to target Shi’ite districts of the capital, with Daesh claiming the deadliest attack so far this year, targeting the shopping area of Karrada overnight Saturday as residents celebrated the fasting month of Ramadan.

The suicide truck bomb that hit Karrada killed at least 115 people and wounded more than 200, according to police and medical sources.

The U.S.-led coalition has trained about six battalions of police and several thousand tribal fighters to ultimately “hold” the city, a spokesman said, but two policemen told Reuters last week only about 700 police had so far been posted to Falluja.

More will likely be needed, as Iraqi forces continue to battle the insurgents in southern and western outskirts. Several hundred fighters apparently trying to slip out of the area to regroup were killed in a series of airstrikes last week.
