Iraqi forces kill 25 ISIS militants in ambush
Iraqi forces kill 25 ISIS militants in ambush

Iraqi soldiers ambushed a gathering of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) near Baghdad on Tuesday, killing 25 amid worries insurgents are encroaching on the capital weeks ahead of elections.

The capital’s security spokesman Brigadier General Saad Maan said the militants were part of the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and the Syria (ISIS), and that they were planning to attack an army base that they had attempted to hit last week, AFP reported.

Despite the tactical success, the killings illustrate the growing ambition of ISIL militants seeking to fight their way into Baghdad, with analysts and officials worrying that they are seeking to derail April 30 elections.

Elsewhere in Iraq on Tuesday, attacks north of the capital killed 15 people overall, security and medical officials said, including six members of the same family shot dead inside their home on the outskirts of the restive city of Mosul.

A car bomb set off by a suicide attacker at a checkpoint in the city of Tuz Khurmatu killed four policemen, while attacks were also carried out in Baiji and Tikrit in Salaheddin province.

Diplomats and analysts have urged the government to reach out to the Sunni community to undermine support for militancy.

But with the parliamentary elections looming, Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and other Shiite leaders have not wanted to be seen as appeasing political rivals.

Near-daily bloodshed is part of a long list of voter concerns that also include lengthy power cuts, poor wastewater treatment, rampant corruption and high unemployment.

The United Nations has warned that the election campaign, which got under way a week ago, will be “highly divisive”, underscoring fears that the polls could worsen the long-standing political deadlock, in which Iraq’s fractious unity government has passed little in the way of significant legislation.

“Campaigning will be highly divisive,” U.N. envoy Nickolay Mladenov told AFP in an interview on April 1.

“Everyone is ratcheting it up to the maximum, and you could see this even before officially the campaign started.”

Mladenov added: “I would hope that it would be more about issues, and how the country deals with its challenges, but at this point, it’s a lot about personality attacks.”

“The efforts to reach across the sectarian divide are very weak.”
