US tank bombs Iraq Sunni mosque
Press TV | June 18, 2007
Muslim Scholars Association has said in an online statement that US forces bombed a Sunni mosque in Baquba, killing five Iraqis.
The association which is headed by Harith al-Dhari indicated that a US tank destroyed the Abdullah Ibn Mubarak mosque in Baquba, 60 kilometers northeast of Baghdad, on Sunday.
The attack, according to the statement has left five Iraqis dead, DPA reported.
The incident came a day after a suicide bomber blew up a vehicle against the Sunni Al-Anwar mosque in the town of Al-Haswa, 60 kilometers south of Baghdad, killing eight people.
Analysts say the United States is behind such terrorist acts in Iraq and with its prolonged presence in the war-torn country is doing its utmost to pit Sunnis against Shias under the guise of war against terror.
On Sunday informed sources reported that the US Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte had planned the attack on the holy Shia shrine in Samarra, a measure to sow discord between Shias and Sunnis as the main Islamic schools of thought.
The blast in Samarra which destroyed the minarets of the sacred shrines of the Shia Imams was performed with the assistance of the former Saddam regime's security agents, the sources added.
