Friday, December 1, 2006.

TIKRIT, Iraq - Iraqi Police successfully engaged a suicide car bomber attempting to breach an entry control point leading to a police station in the Al Dawasa neighborhood Wednesday at approximately 12:15 pm.

The IP prevented the terrorist from breaching the entry control point, but the bomb exploded outside the checkpoint killing four Mosul citizens and the suicide car bomber and injuring 29.

The four citizens killed in the blast included two children and two adults. Those injured were transported to Mosul General Hospital for treatment. One IP officer received treatment for superficial wounds and was released.

“Iraqi Police in Ninewa Province are vigilant to these types of attacks,” said Maj. Adam Rocke, operations officer for 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division. “The sad part is the innocent citizens who are killed or injured as a result of these cowardly acts, especially the children,” he added.
