Iraqi Forces Discover Bombs in Dolls

According to Kuwait News, around 19 dolls were uncovered by Iraqi forces that were booby-trapped with explosives.

ISIS is believed to have booby-trapped the dolls that were found on Nov. 20 in Husseiniya, a suburb of northeast Baghdad, Iraq. In addition, it is believed that the intended victims were Shia Muslims who will soon depart on their Arbaeen pilgrimage.

The dolls were supposed to be scattered along the road between Baghdad and Karbala, a path the Shia Muslims follow each year. In 2014, 17.5 million Shiite Muslims made the pilgrimage.

Both Conflict News and NedoUkrainka posted photos of the dolls. As ISIS continues to try to take over more territory, Northern and Western Iraq have been in a consistent state of violence.

On Nov. 13, a suicide bomber blew himself up at the funeral of a pro-government Shiite Muslim fighter in Baghdad. At least 18 people were killed and 41 wounded. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack that also took place on the same day as the Paris terror attacks.
