Iraqi Premier Orders Probe Into Diyala's Sectarian Violence

23 civilians died in sectarian attacks in Iraq's eastern Diyala province this week.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi on Thursday ordered a comprehensive investigation into the sectarian clashes in Diyala city during the past two days, which left 23 people dead.
In a statement, the country's Interior Ministry said: "Interior Minister Othman al-Ghanimi conveyed condolences and sympathy of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Mustafa al-Kadhimi to families in the village of Al-Rashad and the village of Nahr Al-Imam in Diyala Governorate."
On Wednesday, eight Sunni civilians were killed by Shia gunmen in an apparent revenge attack in Iraq's eastern Diyala province.
The attack came a day after suspected Daesh/ISIS terrorists attacked the predominantly Shia village of al-Rashad in Diyala Tuesday evening, killing at least 15 people and injuring 13 others.
In recent months, Daesh/ISIS terrorists have escalated their attacks, especially in the area between Kirkuk, Salahuddin, and Diyala, known as the "Triangle of Death".
In 2017, Iraq declared victory over Daesh/ISIS by reclaiming all territories the terrorist group controlled since the summer of 2014, about one-third of the country's territory.
The group, however, still maintains sleeper cells in large areas of Iraq and occasionally launches attacks.
