Isis kills 31 in Ramadan bomb attacks

Zynab Al-Harbiya was with her uncles at the shop in Baghdad when a vehicle bomb detonated, killing 17 and wounding 32 people.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Islamic State (IS) militant group, in most cases, is responsible for such assaults.

The nighttime early-morning attack outside the ice cream parlor in the bustling Karrada neighborhood killed 17 people and wounded 32, police and health officials said.

The Muslim world is now observing Ramadan, a month-long festival when people refrain from eating between sunrise and sundown, often coming together to eat at night.

The terrorist group has been retreating in Iraq since the end of 2015 in the face of USA -backed government forces and Iranian-backed paramilitary groups.

The Islamic State group-linked Amaq propaganda agency said the suicide bomber targeted a "gathering of Shias". "We stand with Iraq against this evil", McGurk said on Twitter, using an alternate acronym for IS. The attack was also claimed by IS.

Ramadan is often marked by a surge of violence in Iraq.

During Ramadan previous year, a fatal suicide bombing struck another part of Karrada, killing nearly 300 people. ISIS had claimed responsibility for the incident that led to the resignation of Iraq's then interior minister, Muhammad Ghabban.

Commanders say the offensive, which has entered its eighth month, will mark the end of the IS caliphate in Iraq, but admit the group will probably increase terror attacks in the wake of military defeats.
