ISIS has claimed responsibility for a series of bombing in Shi’ite neighbourhoods of Baghdad which have killed at least 69 people.
Tuesday’s attacks targeted outdoor markets and are the deadliest attacks so far as ISIS, which is 100 per cent Sunni and considers Shi’ites to be heretics, tackles the Iraqi Army and Shia militias in areas north and west of the Iraqi capital.
ISIS put out an online statement claiming responsibility for a callous attack in the Sha’ab district of north east Baghdad, which killed at least 34 people and wounded 75 others.

A roadside bomb exploded outside the concrete bomb-proof walls of an open-air market and, as people crowded around to help the victims, a suicide bomber blew himself up, causing the majority of the casualties.
ISIS, in a statement posted on a website often used by militants, claimed the suicide bomber was an Iraqi who targeted members of Shi’ite militias.
A few minutes after the Sha’ab attack, a suicide bomber driving a car killed at least 18 people and wounded 35 others when he targeted Sadr City, a Shia-dominated eastern suburb.
