The United States Condemns Terrorist Attacks in Baghdad and Karbala

The U.S. Mission in Iraq condemns in the strongest terms the cowardly June 7 Da’esh terrorist attacks in Baghdad and Karbala that targeted dozens of innocent Iraqis celebrating the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan. The deliberate targeting of civilians at the beginning of this holy month and in the noble city of Karbala is extremely reprehensible. The United States remains committed to supporting Iraq’s efforts to defeat Da’esh and eradicate it from Iraq.  Our deep condolences go out to the families of the victims of these attacks and we hope for the swift recovery of those injured.
