UN Acting Special Representative Walpole Condemns Tarmiya Suicide Bombing

Baghdad, 16 May 2018 – Acting Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq, Ms. Alice Walpole, strongly condemned the cowardly suicide terrorist attack in the Tarmiya district north of Baghdad today, killing and injuring a number of people.

“After their military defeat, remnants of the Da’esh terrorist organisation continue to seek to destabilise Iraq. With total disregard for human and religious values, these terrorists targeted a group of mourners receiving condolences, and they struck on the eve of the Islamic Holy Month of Ramadan. It was a despicable act. But, as in the past, they will fail to dampen the independent, democratic spirit of the Iraqi people, who are looking ahead to a future of peace and prosperity,” Ms. Walpole said.

“I offer my deepest condolences to the families of those killed, and I wish the injured a rapid recovery.”
