Gunmen blow up drinking water station near Dalouiya

SALAH AL-DIN / Unidentified gunmen blew up a drinking water station east of the district of al-Dalouiya, a source from Salah al-Din police said on Tuesday. “The gunmen planted several explosive charges around the Kbeiba water station east of Dalouiya, (90 km) north of Baghdad, last night destroying it completely,” Maj. Ali Hussein al-Juburi told “The station was in its final stages of constructions and was planned to provide 200 cubic meters of potable water for four villages that lie 15 km from the River Tigris, east of Dalouiya,” Juburi said. “After destroying the station, the gunmen emplaced four improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on the road near the project. One of them went off near a civilian vehicle, wounding the driver and destroying his vehicle,” he said. Juburi added that the policemen, however, managed to detonate three other IEDs planted less than 500 meters away from an Iraqi army HQ near Dalouiya. Salah al-Din province lies 175 km north of Baghdad. AmR (P) 1
