ISIS Claims Its Cells Carried Out More Than 200 Operations In Iraq During Ramadan

Illustrative image.

On May 21, ISIS’ al-Naba newspaper published an infographic summarizing the terrorist group’s operations in Iraq during the holy Islamic month of Ramadan.

In the infographic, ISIS claimed that its cells have carried out 266 operations against government forces throughout Iraq since the begging of Ramadan on April 23. The operations included 19 raids, 6 ambushes, 37 sniper attacks, 54 improvised explosive device (IED) attacks as well as 5 assassinations.

The attacks were distributed as follows:

  • Diyala: 97 attacks, killing or injuring 123 people;
  • Kirkuk: 41 attacks, killing or injuring 63 people;
  • Northern Baghdad: 19 attacks, killing or injuring 36 people;
  • Al-Anbar: 16 attacks, killing or injuring 35 people;
  • Saladin: 15 attacks, killing or injuring 40 people;
  • Southern Iraq: 15 attacks, killing or injuring 41 people;
  • Tigris: 11 attacks, killing or injuring 28 people;
  • Baghdad: 6 attacks, killing or injuring 37 people;
  • Al-Falluja: 3 attacks, killing or injuring 17 people;
  • Nineveh: 2 attacks, killing or injuring 5 people;
  • Al-Jazeera: a single attack, killing or injuring one person.

There is no doubt that ISIS cells have intensified their attacks in Iraq. Nevertheless, the terrorist group is known for exaggerating and spreading fake information in order to rise the morale of its supporters.

Iraqi government forces inflicted heavy losses on ISIS recently. A series of security operations targeted the terrorist group’s remnants in different parts of Iraq over the last few months.
