Evil people won’t mind killing those innocent little ones with their “twisted” way of thinking. This kind of heartless actions were easily done by the terrorist ISIS.
According to reports, Iraqi security forces have discovered that the group have been using dolls and toys to hide bombs to kill children. The security forces seized more than a dozen booby trapped dolls which will be used by ISIS to bomb the Shia pilgrims.
The military discovered 18 IEDs hidden inside the small bodies of children’s toys, before being dressed in doll clothes.
Arbaeen is considered one of the largest religious gatherings in the world. It is a Shia religious fulfilment that marks the end of the 40-day period of mourning after the anniversary of Imam Hussein’s death, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad.
Millions will set the journey to Karbala over the upcoming weeks. The discovery of the doll bombs which are believed to be deployed between Iraqi capital and Karbala, is vital for the safe trip of the pilgrims. Last year, Arbaeen reached a record 17.5 million number of pilgrims attendees in the city of Karbala.
Last Friday, there were at least 15 people died in several bomb attacks in Baghdad, including one at a mosque in the Iraqi capital’s Nahiyet al-Rasheed neighborhood. A roadside bomb went off on the street outside the mosque just as worshippers were finishing Friday prayers.
According to police, a suicide bomber inside the mosque detonated an explosives vest where ten people were killed and 28 were wounded in the simultaneous attacks.
Security officials added that, two separate roadside bombs exploded in southeast Baghdad commercial areas, killing five people while nine are wounded. However, no one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, only the regular attacks in Baghdad are mostly claimed by ISIS.
