US President Donald Trump has promised a “forceful” response to the alleged chemical attack in Syria, as Western leaders consider what action to take without ruling out military options. Mr Trump said the US was getting some “good clarity” on who was responsible for the incident in Douma on Saturday and that he and French President expressed a desire to intervene.
Meanwhile, its exam time and for some, it’s going worse than others. An Iraqi police officer yesterday opened fire on a teacher after his son failed to pass an exam at school. The incident took place in Dor district of Salahuddin. The teacher was taken to the hospital for medical attention as the Ministry of Interior condemned the act.
Lastly, Iraq is set to host a foreign club for a competitive match for the first time in three decades after a FIFA ban on international and foreign club matches played on home soil was recently lifted. Iraqi Premier League leaders Al-Zawra’a SC will play Lebanon’s Al-Ahed in a 2018 Asian Football Confederation Cup group match today in the Shia city of Karbala. It isn’t clear when the next match would be held in Erbil, but stay tune for any updates.
