BREAKING: Dozens DEAD/Injured… Here’s What We Know


IRAQ – Six pro-government troops were killed and injured Tuesday in clashes with Islamic State in the Iraqi province of Salahuddin, according to Iraqi News.

Speaking to Dijlah TV, a security source said, “Two personnel of al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) were killed and four others injured in an armed confrontation with Islamic State militants in al-Farhatia district, southwest of Samarra.”

The clashes also left scores of Islamic State militants killed and wounded, according to the source.

The exact number of ISIS terrorists killed is unknown but some reports say that dozens were killed.

The remaining ISIS militants left the scene immediately after the attack, the source added.

Yesterday we reported that two Iraqi people were injured Monday in a bomb blast outside popular markets in Baghdad, the latest in a series of terrorist attacks that target the Iraqi capital on almost a daily basis since the defeat of Islamic State last year.

Speaking to Alghad Press, the source said, “An explosive charge went off outside popular markets in the rural district of al-Taji, north of the capital Baghdad.” “The explosion left two civilians wounded.”

The source added that the injured were moved to a nearby hospital for treatment and a probe was launched into the incident, Iraqi News reported.

Their conditions are unknown at this time.

Meanwhile in Kirkuk, Iraq, four civilians were wounded in a bomb blast, northwest of Kirkuk, a security source said on Monday.

Speaking to AlSumaria News, the source said “a bomb went off targeting a vehicle carrying four people in Hetteen region, near police station in al-Dibs town, northwest of Kirkuk, leaving them injured.”

“Security troops cordoned off the blast scene, while the ambulances transferred the wounded to nearby hospital for treatment,” the source, who preferred anonymity, added.

Their conditions are unknown at this time.

Violence in the country has surged further with the emergence of Islamic State extremist militants who proclaimed an “Islamic Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria in 2014.

The surge in violence between armed groups and government forces has resulted in over five million internally displaced persons across Iraq and left more than 11 million in need of humanitarian assistance, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Violence and armed conflicts left 94 Iraqis dead during the month of May, the United Nations said in its monthly casualty count as the the security situations continue to sway after the defeat of Islamic State militants.

In its report, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) said 163 others were wounded, adding that Baghdad was the worst affected Governorate, with 117 civilian casualties (45 killed, 72 injured), followed by Diyala with 9 killed and 35 injured, and Kirkuk with 20 killed and 16 injured.

The organization maintained that the numbers it provides were a “minimum”, saying that hindrances to its works prevent it from setting the exact toll.

Again, what in the hell are these people fighting over?

There’s plenty of land for everyone.

It’s just out of control.
