Baghdad Suicide Attacks: 25 Martyred, 63 Injured in Iraq Twin Bombings
Local Editor

Iraqi security forces said twin bomb attacks in central Baghdad on Monday martyred at least 26 people.

Baghdad suicide attacks

The attack targeted Aviation Square, a commercial area of Baghdad, the interior ministry said in a statement. It was carried out by two men who detonated vests packed with explosives, it said.

General Saad Maan, a spokesman for the Iraqi Joint Operations Command, said two individuals had blown themselves up at the busy square.

Aviation Square is a bustling center of commerce. Day laborers also gather there in the early morning, waiting for jobs. It has been targeted in deadly attacks in the past.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the Monday bombings.

On Saturday, a bomb attack in northern Baghdad martyred eight people.

But the Iraqi capital has experienced relative security in the weeks after the defeat of the Wahhabi Daesh [Arabic acronym for "ISIS" / "ISIL"] terrorist group in early December last year.

Daesh began a terrorist offensive in Iraq in 2014, overrunning territory and brutalizing people there. The Iraqi army and volunteer forces soon launched operations to retake occupied territory and eliminate Daesh.

Victory in those operations was declared on December 9, 2017. But pockets of Daesh terrorists and potential sleeper cells continue to have a presence in Iraq.
