The attack has occurred in the Taji district against cars in which doctors of the group were, as reported by the television network Al Sumaria.

For its part, the international coalition leading the United States against the Islamic State terrorist group has denied its involvement in the attack.

“The coalition has not carried out air strikes near Taji in recent days,” said its spokesman, Colonel Myles B. Caggins, through his Twitter account.

The incident takes place after the number two of the militia coalition, known in Arabic as Al Hashd al Shaabi, Abu Mahdi al Muhandis, died Friday in another attack claimed by the United States in which Iranian General Qassen Soleimani died, also in Baghdad.
