Islamic State has waged its deadliest terrorism campaign in Iraq for nearly two years, raising fears that jihadists are staging a resurgence.
In the past month, since the start of Ramadan, Isis has claimed responsibility for more than 260 terrorist attacks across Iraq, allegedly killing or wounding 426 people.
The attacks form part of the group’s self-proclaimed “battle of attrition” campaign, which has also inspired violence by Isis branches in Syria, Egypt, Nigeria, Niger, Congo and Mozambique in recent weeks.
The US-led military coalition and local security forces say that they have mounted a counter-offensive, which resulted in the killing of two senior Isis leaders in Syria last week.
