ISIS to target southern governorates in Ramadan – Commander
ISIS terrorists are planning to target the southern Iraqi governorates, using booby-trapped bikes and explosive belts during the holy month of Ramadan, al-Rafidain operations command revealed on Monday.  

In a statement, al-Rafidain operations command said that Major-General Ibrahim al-Maqsusi, the operations commander has pointed out that the available intelligence information reveals that ISIS will target governorates of Wasit, Dhi Qar, al-Muthanna and Maysan.

This is a desperate attempt by the terrorist group to cover up its defeats in liberation battles, al-Maqsusi noted.     
For this reason military and security forces have been mobilized to foil ISIS attacks against innocent civilians, he added. 

Earlier reports have revealed that ISIS is plotting to launch attacks in Baghdad during Ramadan.  

ISIS launches attacks every year on Ramadan's gatherings, inflicting high numbers of casualties.
