Comparison of the Fallujah I, II, and III

Overview of Fallujah I. The facility measures 200 x 1,200 meters and occupies 69 acres. There are ten buildings and the facility appears to be dormant. The facility is protected by an outer security fence measuring 3 kilometers in length, an inner wall, an entry contol point, and two guard towers with one in the lower left corner

These four drive-through buildings measure 40 x 55 meters, larger than the similar buildings at Fallujah II, and III
