At least 58 people died and 110 were wounded Tuesday in three separate terrorist attacks in Baghdad, all carried out by Da’esh (ISIS).
Two car bombings and a third bombing on an outdoor market took place in the Iraqi capital, all in Shi’ite neighborhoods, according to ABC News.
The worst attack was one that took place in the northeastern Sha’ab neighborhood where 38 were killed; more than 70 were wounded.
That was preceded by a car bombing at a produce market in the Dora section in southern Baghdad, where eight died and 22 others were wounded.
The day began with a roadside car bombing outside an open air market in Sadr City, immediately followed by a suicide bomber who detonated his explosives as rescue workers and others came running to help victims of the first attack. A total of 14 people died in that attack; more than 20 others were wounded, according to Iraqi security officials.
On Sunday, a Da’esh suicide bomber in the town of Taji, 12 miles (20 kilometers) north of Baghdad attacked a natural gas plant, killing 14 people and wounding at least 27 others. The flames consumed the facility and destroyed at least one of the gas-processing units.Hana Levi Julian
