A devastating truck bombing on a bustling commercial street in downtown Baghdad killed 115 people early Sunday, brutally underscoring the Islamic State group's ability to strike the capital despite a string of battlefield losses elsewhere in the country.

It was the deadliest terror attack in Iraq in a year and one of the worst single bombings in more than a decade of war and insurgency, and it fueled anger toward Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

I think there were more terrorist attacks this year than in 2014. Maybe they're getting desperate especially since they lost fallujah.

If it is the case, they(ISIS) are losing territory then the group becomes more consolidated at least in Syria and Iraq. What is the excuse for not wiping them out yesterday?

actually, Isis is losing territory. They lost fallujah a month ago; that's the city they took before mosul and was notorious for terrorism and now they lost it. The last major city they gained in Iraq was ramadi in march 2015 after they lost Tikrit and they lost that city in the beginning of this year. The last city they took in Iraq was rutbah and they lost that too.

The news is portraying Isis as a plague which the Iraqi government is too disorganized to deal with effectively and this is one of the biggest reasons why I don't like Trump. What Trump won't tell you is that Isis is losing in Iraq and Syria. They are on their last legs in Libya and they have very little teritorry in Afghanistan thanks to constant sieging via the Afghan government and taliban.
