Terrorist bomb attacks have escalated alarmingly in Iraq in recent weeks. Facing almost certain defeat in Syria, the Saudi-backed terrorists have intensified their murderous campaign in Iraq. The Saudi regime is arming, financing and training these terrorists to destabilize the region. The Saudi aim is to divert attention from their own illegitimate rule.

Saudi-backed terrorists have escalated their murderous campaign against the civilian population of Iraq. This in addition to what has been going on in Syria where at least 100,000 civilians have been murdered by these same mercenaries.
Today (Wednesday), at least 75 people were killed in more than half a dozen bomb explosions in different parts of Iraq in an escalating campaign of violence resulting in the murder of more civilians.
In Shatuba, a village near Baquba, 18 people were killed and another 60 wounded when a bomb exploded inside a tent set up for mourners. They were being received following the death two days ago of a pro-government Sunni militiaman.
The terrorists in Iraq target state institutions, Shias as well as Sunnis that are known to be supportive of the government of Iraq. Such attacks have escalated alarmingly in recent months. Last year more than 6,000 people, mostly civilians were killed in terrorist attacks across Iraq.
The terrorist violence has escalated against the backdrop of a continuing standoff between the Iraqi army backed by some Sunni tribal leaders in Anbar province and the Saudi-backed terrorists that call themselves the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS).
The terrorists overran the city of Fallujah two weeks ago where an uneasy standoff between the government and a group led by a Sunni MP had gone on for nearly a year. The government accused Ahmed al-Alwani of harboring terrorists and running a terrorist training camp.
The standoff was seen as direct challenge to the authority of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. Some observers criticized Maliki for using too much force against the Alwani family compound that resulted in the death of six people. They felt the standoff could have been handled differently.
The shootings two weeks ago have provided a pretext for the terrorists to escalate their murderous campaign that has engulfed Fallujah and Ramadi in Anbar province and now spread to other parts of the country, especially inside Baghdad.
The Anbar province stretches from Baghdad all the way to the Syrian border. The Saudi-backed terrorists’ aim is to occupy strategic space in Iraq and Syria and link it up to declare it as their “Islamic” state.
That these groups and their sponsors are prepared to kill thousands of innocent people allegedly on the basis of establishing an “Islamic” state goes against every tenet of Islam and the Sunnah of the noble Messenger (saws). Such people have nothing to do with Islam that forbids the killing of any innocent person.
The claim to establish an “Islamic” state is essentially a cover for their nefarious agenda that is led by Saudi Arabia. The illegitimate Saudi regime is in the forefront of arming, financing and unleashing terrorists in the region.
Today’s terrorist killings in Dujail, Saqlawiya and Baghdad come on the heels of yesterday’s attacks in which 24 people were killed in different parts of Iraq, mainly Baghdad.
