Iraq between two poles of terrorism

A suicide car bomber in Iraq struck a vehicle checkpoint in Ramadi, Anbar province, killing at least 11 people, both police and civilians, Feb. 18. The attack also left 15 people wounded. Four police and a young girl were among the dead. (AlJazeera, Feb. 18) On Feb. 13, provincial officials in Maysan charged that US forces shot eight Iraqis, most of them “innocent bystanders,” in a raid in a village north of the provincial capital of Amara. “What happened this morning was a massacre in every sense of the word,” said governor Mohammed Shia al-Sudany. The US military said the raid was against suspected members of an Iran-backed militia. (Press TV, Feb. 13)
