The Iraqi Security Media Cell announced today the dismantling of two terrorist networks responsible for the terrorist bombing that took place in Sadr City, east of Baghdad, last Monday.
A statement issued by the cell and reported by the Iraqi Alsumaria News website stated that "in the framework of tracking down terrorist gangs and pursuing their remnants, the Federal Intelligence and Investigation Agency in the Ministry of Interior managed to overthrow two terrorist networks in Kirkuk and Anbar governorates responsible for the bombing in Sadr City."
The statement pointed out that the two networks were planning to continue terrorist bombings in Baghdad, especially in the Al-Bab Al-Sharqi area, in addition to targeting civilians in other areas of the Iraqi provinces.
Yesterday, Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi announced the arrest of the terrorist network that planned and executed the terrorist attack in Sadr City, east of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, a few days ago. The Iraqi Military Intelligence Directorate announced last night the arrest of three terrorists in Anbar and Salah al-Din governorates.
It is noteworthy that a terrorist detonation with an explosive device targeted a popular market last Monday in Sadr City, east of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, killing 27 people, including a child, and wounding 45 others.
