Friday: 1 Iraqi Killed, 18 Wounded

Due to the Ramadan holiday, fewer attacks were reported; however, at least one policeman was killed and 18 others were wounded in two separate attacks. Meanwhile, experts in Germany claim to have seen evidence of chemical weapons use by the Turkish military on Kurdish rebels.

Three bombs targeting the Samarra home of an Awakening council member wounded 18 people.

Gunmen killed a policeman last night in Garma.

German experts have accused Turkey of using chemical weapons against the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) rebels. Ankara has denied employing such weapons. Meanwhile, rebels wounded five Turkish soldiers near the Iraqi border, while police defused a bomb in the capital.

In Iran, three Iranian soldiers were killed in an attack blamed on Party for a Free Life for Kurdistan (PJAK) rebels. The PJAK rebels are an offshoot of the PKK and also use Iraqi territory for their base camps.
