Baghdad, 02 January 2017 – The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (SRSG) for Iraq, Mr. Ján Kubiš, strongly condemned today’s triple bombings in Baghdad in which large numbers of civilians were killed and injured.
“This is outrageous. Terrorists of Daesh who are steadily losing ground in Iraq are now trying to sow terror and discord. They will fail here as they are failing at the frontlines,” Mr. Kubiš said.
“I call on the authorities to do their utmost in order to speedily bring the perpetrators to justice,” he added.
“My condolences go the families of the lost ones, as well as my hopes for a speedy recovery for the injured,” he further added.
