As June 30 approaches, the jihad intensifies (when the major media says “insurgents,” they mean “jihadists.”) From CNN, :
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) — Insurgents have staged simultaneous attacks on police stations and other targets in four cities across Iraq, killing at least 40 people and injuring scores more.
In the biggest attack on Thursday, a series of explosions struck the northern city of Mosul, killing more than 30 people and wounding 170 others.
The violence in Mosul — which includes three car bombings, a rocket attack, a raid on a security company and clashes between coalition forces and insurgents — has virtually paralyzed the predominantly Kurdish city.
Iraqi police stations and training facilities were the worst hit in Mosul, with seven Iraqi policemen and one U.S. solider among those killed.
In a coordinated series of attacks across Iraq just six days before power is handed over to an interim government, insurgents also targeted police stations in Baqubah and Ramadi and battled American forces in Fallujah.
Insurgents have taken over parts of Baqubah after launching a series of attacks that killed two U.S. soldiers and four Iraqi soldiers.
