In the eastern side of Baghdad in the neighborhood of Souk Jameela, a truck had been loaded with explosives according to the news on cnbc online streaming live. In this recent attack by the Islamic State, it is said to have targeted Popular Mobilization Unit members and Shiite militias leaving 75 people injured while 36 others dead. It is unfortunate that the number was expected to rise as some were in critical conditions. This is as per a statement from Gyorgy Busztin, U. N official in the country.
The Islamic State is predominantly for the Sunni Muslim extremists who fight against the government and its supporters. Shiite Muslim fighters who are working alongside the Iraqi forces in the operation to push out ISIS have highly being targeted. More than 100 people have died from such attacks in the course of this week only. Just 40 miles north of the capital in the city of Baquba, 61 people were killed when a suicide car bomber detonated his explosives.
After the recent car bomb attack at the vegetable market, the Islamic State claimed attack calling it a blessed operation. The terror group that also killed 120 people in Khan Bani Saad says that it is justified to harm the non-believers and also large-scale killings. Despite the increase terror attacks and heinous crimes by the group, a U.N official predicted that the mission of the group will eventually fail while condemning the attack.
