19 killed in violent attacks in Iraq

Nov 22 2013, 5:18pm CST | by IANS

Baghdad, Nov 23 (IANS) At least 19 people were killed and 42 others wounded in violent attacks in Iraq Friday, police said.

Baghdad, Nov 23 — At least 19 people were killed and 42 others wounded in violent attacks in Iraq Friday, police said.

Five people were killed and 17 others wounded Friday evening when two bombs exploded near a shop in Dora district of southern Baghdad, a police source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

In the capital city of Baghdad, four people were killed and 13 others wounded in four separate attacks, the police source said.

One worshiper was killed and nine others were wounded when a roadside bomb exploded near a Sunni mosque in the Saidiya area of Baghdad, while a doctor was killed when a sticky bomb hit his car in the Adhamiya district north of Baghdad.

Unidentified gunmen assassinated a police officer outside his home in the Amiriya district west of Baghdad, the source said, adding that one worshiper was killed and four others wounded when a roadside bomb exploded near a Sunni mosque in the Abu Ghraib area west of Baghdad.

A roadside bomb attack killed three people and injured six others in the area of Madain, some 20 km south of Baghdad, the police source said.

Three members of the pro-government Sahwa militia were killed and three others wounded when a roadside bomb targeted their car in Tarmiya, 30 km north of Baghdad, he added.

The Sahwa militia, also known as the 'awakening council' or 'the sons of Iraq', consists of armed groups, including some former anti-US Sunni insurgent groups, who turned their rifles against the Al Qaeda network after its leaders became dismayed by the group's brutality and religious zealotry in the country.

Two policemen were killed and another police officer was wounded when a roadside bomb struck a police patrol in the Hamam Aleal area of southern Mosul, some 400 km north of Baghdad, the police source said.

An Iraqi army officer was killed and two soldiers were seriously wounded when a roadside bomb targeted their patrol in the same area, the source said, adding that a bomb hit a civilian car in the Gelyuhan village south of Mosul and killed the driver.

Iraq is witnessing its worst eruption of violence in recent years. According to the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq, almost 7,000 Iraqis were killed and over 16,000 others injured from January to October this year.

It’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys anymore. You’ve seen it in the news. It has shocked and horrified the civilized world. Christians and Yazidis, by the thousands, are fleeing for their lives in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere as devout followers of the “prophet” Muhammad, aka, the “Islamic State,” continue to brutally slaughter these “infidels” on the run, even torturing, dismembering and beheading children as their parents are forced to watch.
