Condemnation of Karrada Bombing, Baghdad

July 3, 2016

World Ahlul Bayt Islamic League (WABIL) utterly condemns the violent horrific bomb attack in Karrada Baghdad, killing at least 160 and wounding over 200. WABIL offers its condolences to the families of the victims and the Iraqi people.
 
The two blasts by trucks piled with explosives were aimed at the Shia community in Karrada. ISIS have claimed responsibility, warning that they will continue targeting Shias.
 
Only a depraved, corrupt, and criminal group of thugs could ever think of targeting civilian men women and children, particularly those fasting to gain closeness and devotion to God.
 
There is no doubt that ISIS has been created by and is being supported by the enemies of humanity: outside foreign elements who seek to turn the Middle into a so-called sectarian blood bath in order to destabilise the region, for their own economic gain, are funding, arming and training these inhumane savages. We call upon the international human rights community to denounce both ISIS and their funders and to bring all of them to account, whether states or individuals.
 
WABIL also urges the Iraqi government to stand up to its responsibility and provide security for its people. Further, as the sad list of orphans and widows is daily increasing in Iraq, WABIL urges the scholars of Iraq, humanitarian organisations, and the rich strata of society, to come forward, stop piling wealth, and support these unfortunate victims of terror.
