Al-Qaida kills Iraqi police commander on 6th try

BAGHDAD – Three al-Qaida suicide bombers attacked a police building in Mosul on Wednesday, leveling the building and killing the city's top commander, who had escaped at least five previous assassination attempts, officials said.

"This day was the decisive one," the group said.

Militants had tried to kill al-Jabouri at least five times before, police officials said. A few months ago, al-Jabouri's guards shot a suicide bomber who approached the commander in an attempt to blow himself up, police said.

Hospital officials in Mosul, 225 miles (360 kilometers) northwest of Baghdad, confirmed the death and said at least one policeman was injured.

Al-Qaida-linked militants across the country, and especially in Mosul, have made wiping out Iraqi security officials like al-Jabouri one of their main goals, in part to intimidate others from joining the security forces. Suicide bombers have been al-Qaida's most lethal weapon, killing hundreds of civilians and members of the security forces.


With that kind of motivation where they have failed the first 5 times and used 3 bombers willing to kill themselves. We know we cannot win this war.
