Counter-terror forces raid ISIS networks day after deadly Baghdad bombing killed at least 32, injured mare than 100
[Rudaw] Iraq’s counter-terror forces detained a number of alleged Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS) forces of Evil in multiple operations against the group on Friday, a day after twin suicide kabooms in Baghdad, claimed by ISIS, killed dozens of people.

At dawn on Friday, the Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS) launched an operation dubbed "Revenge of the Martyrs" in three provinces: Baghdad, Anbar, and Kirkuk and "neutralized a number of terrorists," tweeted Yehia Rasool, spokesperson for Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi.

"Those arrested are linked to ISIS [ISIS] gang networks and have good information about the leaders of these terrorist networks," he stated.

In an open-air market in Baghdad on Thursday, two jacket wallahs detonated boom belts, killing at least 32 people and injuring more than 100.

The attack, after several years of calm in Baghdad, has exposed flaws in Iraq’s security forces, strained under the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...
pandemic, tensions between allies Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
and the United States, and political turmoil.

Hours after the suicide kabooms, Kadhimi had an emergency meeting with his security team and ordered a reshuffling, moving five senior commanders out of their posts.

But the people of Baghdad are afraid of a return to near-daily suicide kabooms and bombings.

ISIS claims responsibility for Baghdad suicide bombing

[Rudaw] The Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for a double suicide bombing in central Baghdad’s Tayaran Square on Thursday that left more than 30 dead in the first attack of its kind in several years.

Two suicide bombers belonging to the terror group detonated explosive belts in the crowded square, the group confirmed via its propaganda telegram channels late on Thursday. It said the second bomber struck as people gathered after the first explosion.

Thirty-two people were killed and 110 injured in the attack, according to Iraq's Ministry of Health.

The first attacker claimed to feel sick, attracting a crowd of helpers before detonating his explosive device, according to the interior ministry.

Ministry spokesperson Major General Tahsin Al-Khafaji told al-Iraqiya TV on Thursday that the bombings "bear the imprint of ISIS."

The terror group struck the same square in 2018, killing 28 people.

ISIS claimed on Thursday in its weekly propaganda newspaper al-Naba that it had killed and injured at least 40 people in 30 operations in Iraq from January 15 to January 21.

In an emergency meeting shortly after the bombing, Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi dismissed and reshuffled several security and intelligence officials responsible for security in the area where the attack took place, not far from the capital’s Green Zone.
