US forces aim to take full control of Fallujah by Saturday morning despite facing fiercer fighting as they push deeper into the restive city.
We control about 75 percent of the city. The more we go in the more we find the fight is becoming fiercer," Major PJ [Bats in the bellfry] Batty said Thursday.
"We planned to take this city in 108 hours and we are right on schedule," he told AFP, referring to the major US-Iraqi offensive launched on Monday evening.
