Islamic State Claims Iraq Suicide Bombing That Killed 38

By Clip Syndicate
The Islamic State group on Friday claimed it carried out a suicide bombing south of Baghdad that targeted Sunni fighters who oppose the jihadists, in which 38 people were killed. The bomber attacked the fighters, known as Sahwa, while they were gathering near a military base in Madain on Wednesday to receive their pay, also wounding at least 56 people. IS claimed the attack in a message posted online titled "Statement on the Martyrdom Operation in the Madain District", and identified the bomber as Saifeddin al-Ansari. IS spearheaded a sweeping militant offensive that has overrun much of Iraq's Sunni Arab heartland since June and have attacked areas that Shiite-led government forces have sought local Sunni help to recapture.
