BREAKING: In the latest terror attack linked to the Islamic State, at least 29 people were killed when a suicide bomber attacked a football stadium south of Baghdad Friday, Iraqi security officials told The Associated Press.
Nearly 60 other people were reported hurt.
Fox News has learned ISIS immediately claimed responsibility for the blast. The terror group also said it was behind the bombings in Belgium Tuesday, which killed 31 people and wounded 270 others.
Security officials tell the AP Friday’s bombing took place during a match in the small stadium in the city of Iskanderiyah, 30 miles from Baghdad. Medical officials confirmed the death toll.
ISIS continues with its attack, even as the Pentagon announced U.S. Special Operations forces have KILLED ISIS’ second-in-command.
It was only 3 days ago when the radical Islamic group murdered at least 30 and injured 300 in multiple Brussels attacks. And just last night, French authorities arrested someone involved in an “advanced stage” terror plot.
It appears all but certain that more attacks are in the works — the question is where and when. The group warned earlier this week, “What will be coming is worse.”
Even though taking out ISIS’ #2 guy is great news, it’s not nearly enough. How many more are there? What is this changing….. NOTHING
The Islamic jihad is not about killing someone here and there – it’s ultimate goal is delegitimizing a vile and savage ideology.
Each attack reinforces what most of us already realize: time is of the essence, both to save lives and stop this growing force before it’s too late.
