The Sunnis of Fallujah have long felt deeply suspicious of the Shiite government, allowing IS to take a hold in the town. This 2005 report explores their isolation and the bitter legacy of the 2004 siege of Fallujah.

An amateur video shows some of the only pictures of the siege of Fallujah taken from the townspeople’s point of view. Ordered to leave their homes by the Iraqi National Guard, families came under fire. “Was this child a terrorist?” one man cries. For Sunnis, the occupation is to blame for everything. A powerful insight to a terrible legacy of grief and anger.
