Seven killed as Shiite militants clash with Iraqi police

BAQUBA, Iraq (AFP) - Fierce clashes broke out Sunday between Shiite militants and Iraqi police in the restive province of Diyala in which at least seven people were killed, a local police officer said.

 

The fighters loyal to radical cleric Moqtada al-Sadr clashed with police in the villages of Kharnabat and Al-Huwaidar, north of Baquba, the provincial capital, said Lieutenant Colonel Najim al-Sumaidaie from Baquba police.

He said five militants from Sadr's Mahdi Army militia and two policemen were killed in the clashes.

The fighting follows similar clashes between Mahdi Army militiamen and Iraqi police and troops this week in the central Iraqi city of Kut in which at least 19 people were killed.


Sadr has ordered his militiamen to observe a ceasefire he declared late August and renewed on February 22, but admits there are splits in his movement.

Though the young cleric earlier this month announced he would spend more time on his religious studies, his aides have said he remains in overall control of his militia and has not withdrawn from the political scene.

US military commanders refer to Mahdi Army fighters refusing to lay down their arms as "rogue elements", some of whom they say have crossed into Iran for training.

US military spokesman Rear Admiral Gregory Smith on Sunday said the fighting in Kut was localised.

"In most instances these are local groups which are having their differences, which are being dealt with through violence," Smith told a news conference.

"It is limited. It is on a limited scale. The security forces have for the most part dealt with the violence. We do not view it as a widespread issue of concern outside Kut."

In other violence on Sunday, one person was killed when a car bomb in Baghdad's western Mansur neighbourhood targeted a convoy of four-wheel drive vehicles usually used by private security contractors, an interior ministry official said.

State television Al-Iraqiya said the convoy was carrying a group of a private security contractors.

Magie de la langue hébraïque


A tous nos chers lecteurs.

 

Ne vous est-il jamais venu à l'esprit d'en savoir un peu plus sur le titre de ce blog ?

Puisque nous nous sommes aujourd'hui habillés de bleu, il conviendrait de rentrer plus a fond dans l'explication du mot lessakel.

En fait Lessakel n'est que la façon française de dire le mot léhasskil.

L'hébreu est une langue qui fonctionne en déclinant des racines.

Racines, bilitères, trilitères et quadrilitères.

La majorité d'entre elle sont trilitères.

Aussi Si Gad a souhaité appeler son site Lessakel, c'est parce qu'il souhaitait rendre hommage à l'intelligence.

Celle qui nous est demandée chaque jour.

La racine de l'intelligence est sé'hel שכל qui signifie l'intelligence pure.

De cette racine découlent plusieurs mots

Sé'hel > intelligence, esprit, raison, bon sens, prudence, mais aussi croiser

Léhasskil > Etre intelligent, cultivé, déjouer les pièges

Sé'hli > intelligent, mental, spirituel

Léhistakel > agir prudemment, être retenu et raisonnable, chercher à comprendre

Si'hloute > appréhension et compréhension

Haskala >  Instruction, culture, éducation

Lessa'hlen > rationaliser, intellectualiser

Heschkel > moralité

Si'htanout > rationalisme

Si'hloul > Amélioration, perfectionnement

 

Gageons que ce site puisse nous apporter quelques lumières.

Aschkel pour Lessakel.
