Government officials say 45 have been killed by a deadly car bomb in Baghdad Thursday morning, at least 50 more are wounded, officials also say Isis claimed the deadly attack.
Fox News reports:
It was the third blast to hit the Iraqi capital in three days, the BBC reported. The bomb exploded in Baghdad’s southwestern al-Bayaa neighborhood shortly before sunset.
ISIS has carried out near-daily attacks in Baghdad even as U.S.-backed Iraqi troops regain ground from the terror group. The military has engaged in an intense operation to regain the ISIS hub of Mosul in northern Iraq since October.
The bombing targeted cars agents and dealers, according to a police officer and medical official. They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters.
