Suicide Attacks in Iraq’s Anbar Kill 41 Troops

Officials say “Three Islamic State suicide bombers targeted a police base in Iraq’s western Anbar province with explosives-laden Humvees on Monday, killing at least 41 police and Shiite militiamen.” The attack took place Monday and around S-held provincial capital, Ramadi. The police base being the target caused a secondary explosion from the ammunition depot.

Another 63 officers were injured in the attack according to Hospital officials who were able to confirm the amount of casualties from the attack. However, they are not allowed to brief the media on what happened and had to be vague about the attacks.

A similar attack happened last month in Ramadi. In that attack IS militants had captured the city, thus making it the biggest gain for the IS militants. In response the U.S. led airstrikes against the extremist group.

Also, from the the loss of Ramadi the Iraqi Prime Minister ordered Shiite militiamen into the Sunni province.

In the latest attack the U.N. has said that military action alone won’t stop the IS group. The U.N. has called for power-sharing among Iraq’s ethnic and sectarian groups.

The United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq, Jan Kubis, said “For any military gains to be sustainable, the government of Iraq must adopt a set of confidence-building measures toward disaffected communities, enabling them to assume a share in governing their matters.”
