  • Thursday saw the continuation by the Islamic State of Iraq of a pattern of sporadic high volume attacks targeting Iraqi security forces and government officials, killing more than fifty and wounding hundreds throughout the country.  In addition to these attacks, ISI routinely carries out daily small level attacks against Iraqis with ties to the government.  Earlier in the week, Iraqi officials were touting what they called a dramatic decline in violence in the past few months. One official cited that Al Qaeda members had become “preoccupied with their new Jihad in Syria.” (Source: Washington Post. Christian Science Monitor)
