Wounded and bloodied people cry for help on the sidewalk outside the ice cream parlor. It was unclear how many of the dead were children. Police and security officials say the explosion in the Iraqi capital’s bustling Karrada neighborhood early on Tuesday also wounded 27 people. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack. It is not the first time the district has fallen victim to the deadly terrorist attacks that coincide with Ramadan. Officials said the bombing was specifically targeted. Iraqi commanders expressed hope that the offensive will terminate ISIS in Irak. A series of large-scale terror attacks hit the district last year. On July 2, 2016, a large truck driven by a suicide bomber rocked the district’s shopping area. Over 300 people died in the attack.
