Iraqi Official Claims ISIS Sent Two Teenage Bombers In Al-Kadhimiyah City

An Iraqi official on Friday claimed that Islamic State (ISIS) sent two teenagers between 16-17 years old to carry out suicide attacks in Al-Kadhimiyah, a city in the north of Baghdad.

A security official quoted by Shafaq News Agency said that posters of the two suspected bombers were placed across the city in a bid to prevent any unpleasant incident.

The two bombers reportedly arrived in Aden Square a few days ago, and that precautionary measures have been taken, in anticipation of any emergency.

Al-Kadhimiyah city is famous for its two shrines of the imams, Moussa al-Kadhim and Muhammad al-Jawad, which are currently strictly guarded. 

The Iraqi army said they have recently thwarted an ISIS attack in the outskirts of al-Muqdadiyah district in the Diyala Governorate of Iraq on Friday.

The response came after ISIS snipers attacked a joint security point of the Iraqi army in the area.

The army retaliated and forced the snipers to retreat to an unknown location.
