The recent Baghdad attack is being considered as one of the deadliest attacks on the city in years. A suicide truck bomb exploded in a busy street in Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, taking the lives of almost 121 people over the weekend.

The Baghdad attack in the most popular shopping district, the Karada neighborhood, targeted people belonging to different age groups. The attack came following hours of the breaking of the holy Muslim month Ramadan fast. The gathering had begun after people finished their Ramadan rituals and have started their Eid-al-Fitr preparations.

The pictures from the scene of Baghdad attack have been obtained that feature how multiple building have been affected along with other assets burnt in the incident, which include cars and metals. Rescue team members as well as civilians have been found searching for survivors and also finding out dead bodies of people as their families waited for the confirmation.

Meanwhile, ISIS claimed the responsibility for the attack. The attacks from the extremists have become a serial event after Paris serial bomb blasts, Orlando shooting, and France’s cop attack. The attackers in all the incidents indicated to have strong connections with the Islamic State group. It has, however, not even been a week when a café in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka and the Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport have been attacked.

An NPR spokesperson, Alice Fordham, described the place where “people were gathering to shop, socialize and watch soccer during a hot, lively Ramadan night.” As people assembled to enjoy their festive season, a bomb-filled truck entered a building, comprising a coffee shop, a gym and other stores. As soon as the explosion occurred, firefighters gathered at the scene to rescue the injured people and recover those who were trapped in affected adjacent buildings.

According to CNN, ISIS promised terror attacks during Ramadan. Iraqi Prime Minister has announced three days of mourning in the wake of the Baghdad attack and the victims. Following the first Baghdad bombing on Saturday, the second explosion was reported on Sunday at a outdoor market in the southeast Baghdad’s Shaab neighborhood. The police officials have state that both attacks have indicated tension between the Sunni-Shiite communities of the Muslims.

“These acts of mass murder are yet another example of Daesh’s contempt for human life,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said. “From Baghdad to Istanbul, Brussels, Dhaka, and Paris, Daesh terrorists murder the innocent to attract attention and recruits. They will not succeed.”
