Iraq Military Commander Survives Suicide Bomb Attack

BAGHDAD — Violence claimed the lives of at least 20 Iraqis on Wednesday, including eight who were killed in a suicide attack against Iraq’s top military commander in the northern city of Mosul. The commander escaped unharmed.
A suicide bomber detonated his car outside a regional traffic police building in Mosul, where Lt. Gen. Riyadh Jalal Tawfiq, the chief of the Iraqi military command for the city, was holding a meeting. General Tawfiq was not hurt, but five of the eight killed were civilians, and 41 people were wounded, including seven of his bodyguards, Iraqi officials said.
Mosul, home to many former military officers loyal to Saddam Hussein, continues to be violent as attacks in much of Iraq have declined. An aggressive sweep of the city by the American military and the Iraqi Army in the spring brought the number of attacks down, but violence still flares.

And there was another bomb in My region in the same day the sound was scary , our windows were broken and our neighbors were injury . And some Chops fall on our home.

  1. I can't possibly imagine what this must be like - to have to live in a war zone in this day and age just seems so terribly wrong. My thoughts are with you.
