The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad strongly condemns the suicide bombings that killed and wounded many Iraqis in Baghdad on the morning of January 15. We send our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and join all of Iraq in mourning the loss of these innocent lives. We wish a quick recovery to those who were wounded.
This brutal attack is an unfortunate reminder that terrorism remains a threat even after the liberation of Iraq’s territory from ISIS. The United States will continue to partner with the Government of Iraq to improve security for the Iraqi people and to prevent a resurgence of the terrorist ideology that threatens both our nations.
