Military footage shows air strikes on rebels with Al-Qaeda links in Iraq


Air strikes have been launched in Iraq against
gunmen thought to be part of an extreme militant group with links to Al-Qaeda. The government’s
defence ministry has released aerial footage of the attacks, showing the missiles hitting
buildings and cars, as people in the area flee for cover. Political commentators have accused Prime
Minister Nuri al Maliki of taking military action for political gain. The politicians are looking for a triumph
at the expense of this group in order to impose control, and get political influence before
parliamentary election in April. They plan to expel the group and enforce stability and
security, not by the hands of people of the city but by Maliki’s forces. Therefore, the
military operations in Anbar have political goals, to achieve the political gains. The military operation in Anbar province comes
after similar strikes against the group in December. The group, known as the Islamic
State of Iraq and the Levant, is one of two rebel groups described by security forces
around the world as the most extreme Sunni Muslim factions trying to overthrow Syrian
President Bashir al-Assad. Their aim is to eventually create their own
state – but in the meantime, the fighting continues.

  3. lets say just one of these people where innocent, with a family. Would you retaliate if your father/mother/brother/sister was obliterated in a missile attack. This is not justice this is mass murder.
