Battle erupts between rival US allies : shi'i puppet police battle sunni collaborators near Abu Hanifah mosque in western Bagdad wednesday evening
In a dispatch posted at 11:20pm Baghdad time Wednesday night, the Yaqen News Agency reported that fighting erupted near the Abu Hanifah Mosque in Baghdad’s al-A‘zamiyah district when a troop of puppet policemen attempted to storm the home of a member of the Sunni collaborationist “al-A‘zamiyah Awakening” police.
Yaqen reported that the puppet police, armed with machine guns, opened intensive fire at the mosque when they came under fire after trying to storm the home of the member of the “Awakening” collaborator forces.  Fighting was still under way as of the time of reporting.
In recent weeks the US has stepped up its effort to rely increasingly on Sunni collaborationist “Awakening” police rather than on the Shi‘i sectarian militias that make up the bulk of the existing puppet police forces throughout much of Iraq and are close to various factions within the regime in Iran.  Washington is apparently attempting to reduce the extent and effectiveness of Iranian influence inside Iraq but the reorientation has met with heavy resistance on the part of the US-installed Iraqi “Prime Minister” Nuri al-Maliki and other members of his administration, who have tried to block American efforts to incorporate the Sunni collaborators into the puppet police and military forces.

Sectarian murder spree continues : three more bodies found dumped around Bagdad
In a dispatch posted at 6:45pm Baghdad time Wednesday night, the Yaqen News Agency reported that the Iraqi puppet police recovered the bodies of three more victims of sectarian murder that had been dumped in various parts of Baghdad.

Shi'i sectarian militia attacks puppet police checkpoint in Balad, sparking gun battle
In a dispatch posted at 5:30pm Baghdad time Wednesday evening, the Yaqen News Agency reported that armed militiamen belonging to one of the parties currently taking part in the puppet government attacked a checkpoint at the as-Salam puppet police station near Balad, 80km north of Baghdad.

Recently confrontations have increased between Shi‘i sectarian militias and US and US-backed forces in Iraq, as Washington increasingly seeks to base its occupation on Sunni collaborators rather than on the Shi‘i sectarian parties that initially helped the US invade and occupy the country.  The Shi‘i sectarian parties, including those to which the current US-installed puppet “Prime Minister” belongs, are close to various political factions in Iran and the United States is apparently seeking to reduce Iranian influence and presence in Iraq.
