ISIS Attacks Baghdad Gas Plant

ISIS is taking credit for an attack against a gas plant in Baghdad earlier today, one in a series of attacks launched by the terrorist group in recent days that have claimed over 100 lives. Ten people were killed in this latest assault, with 24 reported injured. ISIS recently declared a state of emergency in its base in Raqqa, Syria, as the group has lost significant territory recently. In the opinion of one US Senator, ISIS (a Sunni group) is launching these attacks against Shia targets "to form a sectarian war in Iraq between Sunnis and Shia."
