Iraq: Sadr City Cease-Fire Signed After Weeks of Fighting
Iraq's main Shiite political bloc and supporters of firebrand cleric Muqtada al-Sadr signed a fragile cease-fire in Baghdad's Sadr City on Monday, hoping to end seven weeks of fighting that has left hundreds dead. But the US military has alleged that most Shiite extremists fighting Iraqi and US forces in the teeming slum have splintered away from al-Sadr's Mahdi Army, and that the cleric's level of influence on those rogue groups is unclear. Many are thought to be trained and armed by Iranian forces. Iran denies the allegations.

We better be keeping the powder dry anyway. That region is always on the verge of erupting.

In Islamic culture – in jihadi culture – there are two variants of a cease fire: tahadiya and houdna.A tahadiya is roughly defined as a temporary cessation of violence that can be ended at any time for any reason. To employ tahadiya is to employ a tactic that allows for a brief “lull” in fighting for a number of reasons: to rearm, to fortify, as a military tactic or to acquire greater troop strength or a better vantage point. Quoted from: http://www.firesociety.com/article/24895/?showRating=trueWhich means unless whe know WHICH type cease fire Muqtada al-Sad means, we better keep our powder dry (and bullets ready).
