The Beginning


Diyala province -- which sprawls north and east of Baghdad -- has been a major front in the Iraq war since the U.S. troop escalation called the "surge" began earlier this month. U.S. and Iraqi forces in recent months have embarked on offensives targeting al Qaeda in Iraq.

So the surge began in September! It all makes sense now.
