4th Terror Attack at Iraqi Soccer Field This Month!

Where’s the international outrage?… Where are the protests?

In late July… 28 people and 16 children were killed during an Israeli airstrike in Qana, Lebanon. This drew international protests from London to Toronto to Argentina!

In August… at least 29 Iraqis and most of them children have died while playing soccer by terrorists specifically targeting innocent Iraqis.
No international outrage…
No human rights investigations…

Children play soccer in the streets of Baqouba northeast of Baghdad. Terrorists later blew up bombs at a soccer match in Baqouba on Saturday killing four innocents.
