A series of explosions in Baghdad: about 60 people died


Several explosions thundered in the capital of Iraq and its suburbs - the target of the terrorists were mainly Shiite markets and mosques. According to officials and police, today the number of dead reached 57 people, according to The Associated Press.

Sunni groups and the Iraqi wing of al-Qaeda have increased the number of attacks since the beginning of this year and regularly make raids on Shiite areas, inciting religious strife.

In general, the confrontation between representatives of the two currents of Islam declined after a peak in 2005-2007, but the confrontation remains serious. Since the end of 2011, when the last American troops left Iraq, the army and police forces have been unable to resist the growth of sectarian hatred. By the way, on the side of the Sunnis, Al-Qaeda factions are also fighting, which have been very active in the past decade.

A fragile government coalition between Sunnis, Shiites and secularists is now in danger, as Iraq may return to the cruelty level of 2005-2007's. At the same time, the government has to cope with permanent power outages, interruptions in water supply, unemployment, and a shortage of educational institutions.

      Explosions of mined cars and explosive devices occurred in the areas of Al-Jadid, Al-Sadoun, Shiaa, Sedria, Baladiyat, Kefa, Al-Joemhoria and Al-Shorja. A double terrorist attack occurred in the Sadr area, as a result of which 13 people were killed immediately, Reuters reports.

      None of the extremist groups claimed responsibility for the next wave of violence. Despite this, the Iraqi police have no doubts that the terrorist attacks were organized by Sunni militants associated with Al-Qaeda.

      Especially turbulent in Baghdad and Anbar province, where the Islamists organized their shelters, warehouses with weapons, ammunition, food. On May 27, the Iraqi army, with the support of four air force fighters, conducted an operation to liquidate gangs in Anbar province.

First, airstrikes were launched against the militants' shelters, then more than ten members of illegal armed groups were killed during the clash. As a result, 7 senior al-Qaeda leaders were detained in Iraq.

      PKK militants will be withdrawn from Turkey by the end of June

      Representative of the Kurdish Party for Peace and Democracy (PMD) Selahattin Demirtash said yesterday that the process of withdrawing the PKK militants from Turkey will generally be completed by the end of June, reports citing the Hurriyet newspaper.

      The two-day PMD conference began in Ankara on May 25. It was attended by representatives of civil society organizations and trade unions, members of parliament, writers and journalists. They all gathered to support the resolution of the 30-year conflict between the PKK and the Turkish armed forces.

      The conference began with a speech by Sirri Suraya Onder, PMD MP from Istanbul. Onder called on the conference participants to "follow, observe and control this great historical process." Constitutional changes, the fight for rights and freedoms, as well as the release of the imprisoned PKK leader, Abdullah Ocalan, were the main demands voiced throughout the conference.

      On May 8, in accordance with the agreement reached earlier with the Turkish authorities, the first group of PKK militants advanced towards the Iraqi border. On May 14, an armed detachment of 9 men and 6 women, breaking dozens of kilometers in the highlands, went down to the valley in Iraq. They were met by representatives of the PKK and the administration of Iraqi Kurdistan.

        Democracy in the face, this is the kind of democracy the United States and Western countries want to instill in Syria. Saddam may have been cruel, but Iraq was flourishing with him. All this once again proves that I have no place in the Middle East, with its crap.

    It was all calm with Grandpa Hussein in Baghdad ... Because Grandfather, well understood that in the east, democracy is nonsense, which will lead to massacre. And he acted as he had acted for centuries in the east .. Any rebellion in the bud was burned out. He was right.

    Such a "democracy" will now go on there for tens of years ... as well as in other democratized countries of the Middle East. And the culture there is very ancient and there are many historical monuments ... like tourists from the west will be put on camels to entertain them ... guarded by tanks ...

    "Everything is calm in Bogdad." Shiites, Sunnis, Wahhabis and Orthodox Christians, Catholics, Protestants, etc. etc. - "Divide and conquer" - the motto of demons, masons, liberals. Quiet and peaceful only in Paradise with the Lord God. But it is said that we are all brothers and sisters in the flesh, and it would be good also by faith - why are we killing each other. It was the same in our civilian, kosher with our and with our hands they shot us and that it became easier to live. There will be no peaceful life without a UNITED FAITH.

    Tucked together by the British on the wreckage of the Ottoman Empire and achieved true independence only under Saddam Hussein, Iraq as a unitary state no longer exists. The territorial division is inevitable.

    The States plunged Iraq into an endless civil war on religious grounds, but most importantly, Iraqi oil is under US control. What cynicism is "EMPIRE OF LIES AND EVIL".
