The Embassy of the United States in Baghdad strongly condemns the terrorist attack and suicide bombing, for which ISIS claimed responsibility, yesterday in Nahrawan, southeast of Baghdad.
The U.S. Embassy sends its sincere condolences to the families of the victims of this brutal attack and to all of Iraq. We also wish a quick recovery to those wounded yesterday.
This cowardly attack on innocent civilians is a further example of ISIS desperation at the loss of its so-called Caliphate, and it is a reminder to all of us that the fight against ISIS and its terrorist ideology is far from over. The United States will continue to support Prime Minister Abadi and the Iraqi Security Forces in their efforts to rid Iraq of this evil enemy.
