At least 32 people were killed, whereas, more than 100 received injuries in the first large attack in 3 years in Iraq’s capital Baghdad on Thursday. The twin suicide attacks were carried out in central Baghdad.

According to details, the death toll in a double suicide attack in central Baghdad on Thursday rose to 32, while the number of those injured increased more than 100.

On Thursday morning, two suicide bombers hit the Bab Al Sharqi area in the Iraqi capital. After the incident, spokesman for the Iraqi commander-in-chief said that the attackers were pursued by the country’s security forces, when they detonated explosive devices.

The footage showing the second explosion was widely shared on social media.

Iraqi President Barham Salih, stated that the authorities would strongly resist terrorist attempts to destabilize the situation in the country.

“The two terror blasts against the peaceful citizens of Baghdad prove the desire of [terrorist] groups to bring the great national needs down. … We stand firmly against these rogue attempts to destabilize our country,” Salih wrote on Twitter.

Several countries, including Qatar, Turkey, Jordan, Egypt and Iran have strongly condemned the terrorist attacks.
