Shafaq News/ The Iraqi Ministry of Interior revealed, on Sunday, new details about the Kadhimiya city bombing, which was claimed by ISIS, and the detainees accused of the incident.

The bombing took place on Thursday evening, June 3, 2021, through an explosive device, in a crowded crowd of people, near the shrine of Imam Al-Kadhim, leaving three victims and 36 wounded.

A source in the Iraqi Interior told Shafaq News that a special force from the intelligence agency headed by Ahmed Abu Ragheef managed to arrest a first suspect in the bombing, less than a day after the incident.

He added that this accused was found to be affiliated with the Ministry of the Interior, specifically within the protection of the security cordon of the city of Kadhimiya, and admitted his responsibility for facilitating the entry of explosive materials to the site of the accident, in addition to his monitoring of the area and submitting reports to an explosive cell affiliated with ISIS. 

The source said, “In light of the confessions, another suspect, one of the members of the cell, was reached, and he was arrested by a National Security force, and it turned out that he was an ISIS member,” noting that the two detainees are in the custody of the intelligence agency to complete the investigation with them.

The area surrounding the shrine of Imam Musa al-Kadhim is witnessing a complete closure by the security forces, and entry to the area is only allowed after a thorough search of people, whether they are men, women or children.

The Iraqi authorities impose strict security measures in the vicinity of Shiite and Sunni holy sites, after witnessing over the past years, mostly suicide attacks, that caused hundreds of victims and wounded, and the authorities often blame them for ISIS.
