Even a senior officer has warned them that the death toll may rise further. The Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi was met with an angry crowd when he was visiting the scene of destruction on Sunday. He later declared three days of national mourning.

US speaks

The US has said that the recent blast has strengthened their resolve to support Iraq in their fight against the IS.

“We remain united with the Iraqi people and government in our combined efforts to destroy IS”

The IS sends a clear message

The destruction and death acts as a clear message from the jihadists of the Islamic State. Their actions clearly state that though they are defeated they know exactly where to hit back on. Their target were the innocent civilians. Killing people in the middle of the road was their retort to the defeat that they suffered in the hands of the Iraqi forces in Falluja. The IS are trying to prove themselves to their supporters and their enemies.

As the IS now comes under more strict military pressure, it is very natural to fear that Iraq may face deadlier explosions in the near future.
