Fresh wave of militant bombings kill 26

CP24.com of Toronto, Canada published a report today from TEHRAN, Iran, written by Sameer N. Yacoub of the Associated Press that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will "continue to provide Baghdad with military advisers and weapons" in the face of continued attacks in an "escalating Sunni insurgency."

A string of bombings in and near Baghdad killed 26 people on Tuesday, including a double car bomb explosion at Habaybina restaurant in a Shiite-majority district in eastern Baghdad which killed 15 and wounded 32 others.

42 people were killed on Monday, as militants "unleashed a wave of deadly attacks on Iraq's majority Shiite community."


The Huffington Post published an AP article by Sinan Salaheddin from Baghdad reporting a wave of ISIS attacks targeting Baghdad last Thursday, October 16, 2014, in which at least 50 people were killed and dozens injured.

According to the article, the Islamic State group "has overrun vast areas in western and northern Iraq as well as parts of neighboring Syria, and has vowed to destabilize and eventually take over Baghdad."

Thursday's explosions had brought the death toll from attacks since the preceding Sunday to at least 162 people, mostly in Baghdad, according to an Associated Press tally, the report concluded.


If Islamic State militants take over Iraq, the Kurds of Kurdistan will have no choice but to break free from Iraq, and their new nation will inherit an immediate, barbaric enemy state on their southern border.  The war between the Medes and the Chaldeans prophesied by Jeremiah will be inevitable.
