Islamic State suicide tank attack on police base kills 37, slows slow Iraq’s Ramadi counterattack

BAGHDAD – A huge suicide bomb attack on an Iraqi police base killed at least 37 people Monday, further slowing an operation to retake the city of Ramadi from Islamic State jihadis. The blast came as U.S.-led coalition members carrying out air raids against Islamic State and providing training and weapons to Iraqi forces prepared to meet in Paris for talks on a string of major battlefield gains by the jihadis in Iraq and Syria. A suicide bomber blew up his explosives-laden vehicle at a police base in Iraq’s Salaheddin province, killing at least 37 people and wounding more than 30, officers said. “They are mostly policemen,” said a doctor at the main hospital in the nearby city of Samarra where the casualties were taken. Some police officers said the suicide attacker used a tank to muscle his way into the police base, located between Samarra and Tharthar lake, northwest of Baghdad. The area is being used as part of a military operation aimed at cutting off the Islamic State group’s supply lines in Anbar province of western Iraq. Islamic State fighters have in the past year seized a formidable arsenal of military vehicles, weapons and ammunition from retreating Iraqi forces. The jihadis’ latest haul of gear came on May 17 when Iraqi forces fled and they captured Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province. The debacle of the security forces prompted Iraqi leader Haidar al-Abadi to call in the Hashed al-Shaabi, an umbrella organization that includes Iran-backed Shiite militias that Baghdad and Washington had been reluctant to involve in the Sunni bastion of Anbar. Iraqi forces launched a counteroffensive but...

There is not even a single Quran available in majority of Muslim regions, villages, and towns located in this continent. While the whole village people make use of a single Quran of the village, the young students in the village learn from that single Quran of the village.   The Muslim people in Africa learn Quran by their own system despite all the challenges they face with on the way of enlightenment.  There are written the ayahs and hadiths on the wooden boards called ‘Luh’ and these will not be erased until they are learned by heart. When the memorization is completed, the board is erased, and new lessons are written on the board. As there is not a Quran for every student with they can exercise for memorization, their studies are maintained through this system.   Hayrat Aid Association paves the way for providing chances for the students who are studying science with impossibilities with their Quran campaign. The target of the campaign which will be first initiated in Sudan, eventually is the whole Africa. The campaign price for each of the Qurans to be distributed to all these educational institutions, especially the schools and the orphanages, is TRY 15,00. Elifba juzes (parts) are also included in the campaign against a price of TRY 1,00.  ...
