The Iraqi army on Saturday (August 18th) arrested six suspected al-Qaeda fighters and seized two car bombs in their possession in an attack on a village east of Tikrit, the capital of Salaheddine province, the Iraqi Defence Ministry said.

Maj. Gen. Mohammed Hamed Kamar, commander of the army's 4th Division, told Al-Shorfa that an Iraqi army force arrested the suspects during military operations in villages in the district of Tuz Khormato, 90 kilometres east of Tikrit.

The detainees are now under interrogation in a security detention facility, he said, adding that the army's explosive ordnance disposal team defused the car bombs, as well as eight sticky bombs also found in the suspects' possession.





    The limits of the Iraqis’ suffering represent the details of their great suffering and in these details there is much to say. In one of the recent United Nations reports on the situation of the Iraqis, the report confirmed that a third of the Iraqis are suffering from poverty and the inability to provide their basic needs from food, clothing and housing. And it is a situation linked to the merits and other details of the Iraqis current lives particularly, in the issue of security that prevents the Iraqis to live normally, and makes them the target of killing operations of terrorism. Also, it disables their business and various activities including simple activities and the terrorist actions and the output of their stage from their bodies and groups, including killer gangs and militias. They make the Iraqi life painted by the killing and wounding of hundreds of Iraqis every day. The violence and terrorist operations have become a daily factory producing the maimed, disabled persons, and the displaced persons that need care and attention.
