A humanitarian crisis is in the making in Ramadi, Iraq. Up to 70,000 residents of the city of 250,000 are fleeing an IS advance on the city.

According to Haft-e Sobhdaily, it comes after the United States and some Arab countries put pressure on Baghdad to limit the activities of 30,000-plus trained Shiite fighters in the war against IS terrorists.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi obliged and his decision emboldened IS fighters to pursue their deadly goal in Ramadi.

The commander of Badr Organization, a Shiite militia, has said that his forces stand ready to help defend Ramadi. Whether the prime minister has the guts to make a courageous decision remains to be seen.

What comes bellow is a collection of photos showing the outflow of the Iraqis:
