Military Snapshot - Clearing a house in Fallujah

During Operation Phantom Fury, a soldier uses a weapon-mounted flashlight while clearing a darkened house in Fallujah. The poor visibility, coupled with household furniture and rubble, made clearing a building extremely hazardous. Insurgents used the debris -- furniture, bedding, and anything that offered cover and concealment -- for hardening in-house positions.
