US Air Strike Targets Iraqi Doctor

US military warplanes conducted an airstrike on Sunday and targeted several residences in a village close to Hawijah town, located 282 kilometers (175 miles) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, where they killed a doctor and detained his brother, Aswat al-Iraq news agency quoted Omar al-Juburi, a lawmaker from al-Wasat (Center) bloc as saying on Tuesday.

Juburi called on the Iraqi parliament to “condemn the sinful incident and form a committee to investigate it.”

Separately, unidentified assailants using weapons fitted with silencers, fatally shot a civilian in the al- Jamhouriyah neighborhood of Fallujah, situated some 50 kilometers (31 miles) west of Baghdad, on Tuesday.

They assailants fled the scene after the attack and their whereabouts are unknown.

In a similar incident, gunmen clad in Iraqi military uniforms raided a house in Baghdad's western neighborhood of Abu Ghraib, and stabbed a man to death.

Militant attacks and sporadic high-profile bomb explosions continue to devastate Iraq, and have raised concerns about an uptick in violence in the war-torn country.

They also pose a major challenge to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, whose coalition government took office in December 2010.
