UNAMI Strongly Condemns Suicide Bombing in Northern Baghdad

Baghdad, – The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) strongly condemns the suicide bombing Saturday in northern Baghdad and other attacks in other areas of the country which killed or injured many civilians.

These attacks aim first and foremost at weakening Iraqi unity and undermining the people’s morale as the country’s security forces gear up for the battle to liberate the remaining territory in Ninewah and Mosul from the control of ISIS group,” UNAMI said in a statement.

The attacks will not be able to break the will and determination of the Iraqis to liberate their land,” the statement added. On Saturday, a suicide bombing targeted a funeral in northern Baghdad, killing at least 34 people and injuring 35.
