Civilians Killed, Children Among The Dead . . . . In Iraq

Maliki The Magnificent: Those Zionists think they can kill more women and children than me? How dare they entertain such silly notions! Inshallah, I will show them. Fallujah and Mosul will surrender before Gaza.

An excerpt from, "Iraqi Govt Barrel Bombs Kill 19 Civilians in Fallujah" by Jason Ditz, Antiwar.com, July 22:
The Iraqi government launched another round of airstrikes against an ISIS-held city today, this time pounding the area in and around Fallujah, one of the first cities to fall to ISIS way back in January.

As with other recent strikes, the toll was entirely civilian, at least according to Health Ministry officials, who confirmed 19 slain civilians, including a number of women and children, and 38 wounded civilians.
