(TargetLiberty.org) – On January 20, as the world watched a new US president be sworn into office, twin bombings ripped through Baghdad, Iraq. The suicide attacks left more than 100 people injured and 32 dead. The Islamic State (ISIS) took credit for the attacks, and now the terrorist organization is paying the price.
On Tuesday, February 2, Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi announced the deaths of two ISIS terrorists, Ghanem Sabah Jawad and Abu Hassan al-Gharibawi. The latter was the alleged leader of the terrorist organization’s southern Iraq chapter.
The terrorist Abu Hassan al-Gharibawi, the so-called leader of southern Iraq in Daesh, and the terrorist Ghanem Sabah Jawad, who is responsible for transporting suicide bombers, were both eliminated today, in addition to other terrorist elements.

The deaths came as the military hunted down those responsible for the attacks last month. A few days prior to the latest announcement, a joint mission between US and Iraqi troops took out the head of the country’s ISIS organization, Jabbar Salman Ali Farhan al-Issawi.
Although former President Donald Trump was able to help the Iraqi government reclaim territory ISIS had stolen, there are still terrorist attacks in the country. Fortunately, the military seems to be continuing the 45th president’s mission to rid the world of the terrorist organization even after he’s left office.
