At least two dozen people were killed and many more were injured when several bombs went off in Baghdad yesterday. The attacks mainly targeted crowded market places in neighborhoods where many Shiite Muslims live.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for some of the attacks, and officials believe they may be behind the others as well.
The radical terrorist group regularly targets Shiite civilians in the country. ISIS is comprised of Sunni Muslims who consider Shiites apostates. As NPR notes, similar attacks and suicide bombings have been on the rise recently as Iraqi forces take back ISIS strongholds including the city of Mosul.
