Iraq has seen assaults perpetrated by both the Islamic State group and mostly Shiite militia groups in recent months. Militias have routinely targeted the American presence in Iraq with rocket and mortar attacks , especially the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad 's heavily fortified Green Zone.

On October 26–27, 2019, the United States conducted Operation Kayla Mueller, a military operation named after Kayla Mueller, that resulted in the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

An attack with exactly the same modus operandi had already left the same place in mourning, killing 31 almost three years ago to the day. As in 2018, the attack comes as authorities discuss the organization of a legislative poll, a deadline regularly accompanied by violence in Iraq.

The government had promised the early election of a new parliament in June. But the authorities are now proposing to postpone it until October, in order to give the Electoral Commission more time to organize the poll.

Reduction of the American presence

On the night of Thursday to Friday, Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack, carried out according to an operating method already used in the past by the jihadist group which occupied nearly a third of Iraq in 2014 before Baghdad does not claim to have won its war against the jihadists at the end of 2017.

Since then, jihadist cells have been hiding in the many mountainous and desert areas of the country. Since the "liberation" however, the jihadist group has claimed only small-scale attacks, usually carried out at night against military positions in isolated areas far from cities.

The last attacks which killed several people in Baghdad date back to June 2019. This attack comes when the United States has reduced the number of its soldiers in Iraq to 2,500 men, a drop which "reflects the increase in the capacities of the army Iraqi, ”in the words of Pentagon chief Christopher Miller.
