Iran’s diplomatic spokesperson condemned a suicide bombing in Baghdad claimed by ISIS, arguing: “Takfiri terrorism… is targeting Iraq again and seeks to disrupt tranquility and stability in this country and create a pretext for continued presence of foreigners”. He further maintained that “Iran stands ready to offer Iraq whatever help and assistance in the fight against terrorism and extremism”. The U.S. also condemned the attack, calling it “a reprehensible act of cowardice that underscores the dangers of terrorism that millions of Iraqis continue to face”.
