Fighting between Iraqi troops, al-Qaeda kills 34

Published: 01.05.14, 22:46 / Israel News

The Iraqi military tried to dislodge al-Qaeda militants in Sunni-dominated Anbar province Sunday, unleashing airstrikes and besieging the regional capital in fighting that killed at least 34 people, officials said. A series of bombs in Shiite neighborhoods of Baghdad, meanwhile, killed at least 20 people.


The recent gains by the insurgents have been a blow to the Shiite-led government - as sectarian violence has escalated since the US withdrawal. US Secretary of State John Kerry said Washington was "very, very concerned" by the fighting but would not send in American troops. (AP)
