Iran categorically slammed terrorist attacks in Baghdad which claimed lives of dozens of Iraqi citizens.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said that Iraqi people would soon celebrate their victory over the ISIL Takfiri-Zionist terrorists.
He said that such passive and blind actions would fail to overshadow Iraqis’ resolve to clear their land from bloodthirsty terrorists.
The remarks came after 51 people were killed and 55 others were injured after a car bomb exploded in a neighborhood south of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.
The incident took place on Thursday when the explosive-laden vehicle blew up in a Baghdad street full of garages commuted by car dealers in Hayy al-Shurta district.
The Daesh terrorist group, which is on the defensive after losing control of eastern Mosul to a Iraqi military offensive, claimed responsibility for the bombing.
The attack came only a day after a similar car bomb hit the Sadr City suburb of the Iraqi capital on Wednesday, killing at least 15 and wounding 50.
Daesh has recently increased its terrorist activities across Iraq in revenge for the blows it has been suffering at the hands of Iraqi forces.
