Iraq: Suicide bombing kills 7 near Najaf

By Ali Jawad

 

BAGHDAD (AA): A suicide bombing killed seven policemen and injured dozens near Iraq’s southern city of Najaf on Sunday.

Three bombers blew themselves up at a security checkpoint in al-Qadisiyya, north-west of Najaf, after an exchange of fire with security forces, local official Hussein Wahid told Anadolu Agency.

He said 25 people, mostly tribesmen, were injured in the attack.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the bombing, but Iraqi officials often point the finger at the Daesh terrorist group, which overran vast swathes of territory in northern and western Iraq in 2014.

Sunday’s attack came one day after at least 27 people were killed and dozens injured in a twin bombing claimed by Daesh in the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

The violence comes amid an ongoing offensive launched by the Iraqi army to recapture Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, from Daesh.
