(Reuters) A suicide attacker detonated an ambulance packed with explosives in Tikrit on Sunday, killing nine people at the southern entrance to the city, police and hospital sources said.

The bomber struck during the busy morning rush hour. Authorities declared a curfew in the city, saying they had information that further attacks were possible.

In Samarra, about 50 km (30 miles) south of Tikrit, two people were killed when a suicide car bomber struck a car park for Shi’ite pilgrims visiting the city’s al-Askari mosque, sources said.

The attacks took place as Iraqi troops and security forces, backed by a U.S.-led international coalition, were fighting to drive Islamic State militants out of the northern city of Mosul which they have controlled for the last two years.

What we are seeing is Sunnies killing Shiites in Iraq, Sunnies killing Shiites in Yemen, Sunnies killing Shiites in Syria.

And the bullshit guy alias “Daeshbag Sux” or “the nazisraelian propagendist” comes and tells you that Sunnies hate jews. What a joke.

Sunnies puppets strike again and killed Shiites. In fact, Sunnies hate shiites but love jews even if they have the same religion as Shiites.

Surely, USA did it. If you want to be safe, you must expel the american terrorists and their sunnies puppets.

America must be kicked out of the Middle east and return their stolen lands. America has nothing to do in the Middle east.
