The Islamic State claims the double suicide attack in Baghdad market

Cairo / The jihadist group Islamic State (IS) today claimed responsibility for the double suicide attack in a market in central Baghdad that left at least 32 dead and more than 100 injured on Thursday.

In a statement released through one of its propaganda channels on Telegram, the IS assured that the attack was perpetrated by two suicide bombers.

According to the note, one of the attackers got into the middle of a group of “renegades”, which is what this terrorist group calls the Shiites in Al Tayaran Square, in the center of the Iraqi capital, and detonated a belt of explosives.

The second suicide bomber, he added, blew himself up in the same way when other Iraqi citizens and members of the Iraqi security forces came to the aid of the wounded.

According to the claim of the Islamic State, this action caused more than 30 deaths and about 100 wounded.

This account coincides with the version that the Iraqi Government gave yesterday, according to which, the first attacker pretended to be sick and asked for help from the people around him in a popular street market for second-hand clothes, when a group had approached of people, he blew himself up.

According to the latest balance of the Iraqi Ministry of Health, the attack caused 32 deaths and 110 injuries, although the number of deaths could increase due to the severity of some of the injured.

It was the largest suicide attack in central Baghdad in recent years and the first since May 2019 and hours after the prime minister, Mustafa al Kazemi dismissed part of the Interior Ministry’s security dome. (January 22, 2021, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
