ISIS has claimed responsibility for a car bomb attack on an Iraqi town in Diyala province — the latest use of a tactic the group heavily relies on.
The attack targeted a crowded marketplace, killing at least 115 adults and children, according to Al Jazeera. It came on the first night of Eid al-Fitr, which celebrates the end of Ramadan.
On Twitter, ISIS took credit and said the attack was meant to target Shiite Muslims.
