ISIL bombings meant to undermine Iraq unity: Hezbollah
Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah has strongly censured the deadly ISIL terrorist bomb attacks that claimed over 90 lives in different parts of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, saying such terror acts are meant to undermine the Arab nation’s unity.
According to Press TV, in a statement, Hezbollah described the bloody explosions in Baghdad as inhumane and called for efforts to contain the epidemic of terror attacks.
The resistance movement also said the countries that support the terror groups in the Middle East are to blame for such “heinous” crimes, and must be held to account.
Such atrocities target the unity among Iraqis, added Hezbollah, expressing hope that the Arab nation would manage to weather the terror threats through patience.
During a televised speech on Thursday, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah also slammed the terror attacks in Baghdad and said Daesh goes on a killing spree against innocent civilians whenever it suffers heavy blows on the battleground.
Over the past 48 hours, more than 90 people have been killed in three separate bomb attacks claimed by ISIL Takfiri terrorists in Baghdad.
Baghdad witnessed one of its bloodiest days this year on Wednesday, when a car bomb explosion ripped through a market in the largely Shia Muslim neighborhood of Sadr City, leaving 64 people dead and nearly 90 others wounded.
Later in the day, a bomber detonated his explosives in the al-Kadhimiya neighborhood, martyring 17 people. A similar attack at a checkpoint in the al-Jamia neighborhood claimed a dozen lives.
On Thursday, at least five police officers lost their lives when twin explosions hit a police station in the Iraqi capital’s westernmost suburb of Abu Ghraib.
