chattels: Friday, May 20, 2016 Short Explanation Of Islamic State’s Bombing Campaign In Iraq’s Baghdad Baghdad is currently facing a wave of bombings by the Islamic State. That is due to two factors. 1st IS is losing on the battlefield and is turning towards more insurgent and terrorist attacks in response. The capital has been the main victim of this shift.
At the same time, it is the time for the annual spring offensive, which has been going on since 2004. That has always been characterized by more bombings, especially in Baghdad. May 2016 isn’t even over yet and there have already been as many car bombings in the governorate since August 2015, and as many suicide bombers as April 2014. Unfortunately for Baghdad once this wave is over a Ramadan campaign is likely to follow it during the summer.
