The bombing targeted a market in the Sadr City area

A suicide bombing killed 35 people and left dozens of injuries in a crowded market in the Sadr City neighborhood of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, on the eve of Eid al-Adha, according to security and medical sources.

The so-called Islamic State claimed the attack, and it was carried out by a suicide bomber named Abu Hamza al-Iraqi.

About sixty people were injured as a result of this bombing, for which no party has claimed responsibility so far.

Medical sources in Iraq suggested that the death toll would rise, as there were a number of serious cases among the injured.
