The Iraqi security forces managed to kill five members of this unknown group before the remaining three terrorists detonated their explosives.
Today’s terrorist attacks were conducted on the same day Shi’i pilgrims conclude the ‘Arba’een period that commemorates the death of Imam Hussein ibn ‘Ali, the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson.
