Shafaq News / On Friday, ISIS claimed responsibility for the double suicide bombing that targeted Al-Tayaran Square in the center of the capital, Baghdad, killing 32 people and wounding 110.

The organization said in a statement that the two suicide attacks were carried out by “Abu Yusef Al-Ansari” and “Muhammad Aref Al-Mujahid.”

On Thursday, Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi vowed a “harsh” and “earthquake” response to the suicide bombings in Baghdad.

Al-Kazemi said in a tweet on Twitter, “Our people have demonstrated the solidity of their resolve in the face of ISIS’s takfiri terrorism. The will to live among our people as they challenge terrorism in the place of the heinous crime of Bab Al-Sharqi was a message of unparalleled pride and popular valor.”

And he vowed, “Our response to those who shed pure Iraqi blood will be cruel and earth-shattering, and the leaders of ISIS darkness will see which men they face.”

Al-Kazemi removed five prominent leaders from their posts hours after the bombings.
