Terrorism in Baghdad, Four People Injured

August 9, 2018 | Brainwave Science


Four people, including a child, were wounded in a bomb blast, southwest of Baghdad. Speaking to Baghdad Today website, the source said, “a bomb, placed inside a vehicle carrying commuters, went off while passing by al-Aamel district, southwest of Baghdad, leaving four people, including a child and a woman, injured.”

Ambulances managed to transfer the wounded to nearby hospital for treatment, the source, who preferred anonymity, added.

Earlier today, two civilians were wounded in a bomb blast, in al-Taji district in northern Baghdad. A total of 79 Iraqi civilians were killed and another 99 injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in Iraq in July 2018, according to casualty figures recorded by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

Baghdad was the worst affected Governorate, with 63 civilian casualties (30 killed, 33 injured), followed by Kirkuk (8 killed, 34 injured) and Nineveh (13 killed and 05 injured).

Islamic State continues to launch sporadic attacks across Iraq against troops. Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses threat against stability in the country. The group still has dormant cells, through which it carries out attacks, across Iraq like it used to do before 2014.


The human cost of terrorism has been felt in virtually every corner of the globe. The United Nations family has itself suffered tragic human loss as a result of violent terrorist acts.

Terrorism clearly has a very real and direct impact, with devastating consequences for the enjoyment of the right to life, liberty and physical integrity of victims. In addition to these individual costs, terrorism can destabilize Governments, undermine civil society, jeopardize peace and security, and threaten social and economic development. All of these also have a real impact on the enjoyment of human rights.

A new strategic approach, a better one, in terms of counterterrorism and counterintelligence can prevent these disasters and reduce the number of loses, in terms of human lives and human rights. More than once, insufficient information determines the wrong approach and with insufficient accurate intelligence, authorities will face the same problem, over and over again, without the means to stop it. Law enforcement take considerably longer to update their investigatory techniques, while terrorists refine their methods in a short time frame.


iCognative by Brainwave Science is a state-of-the-art security solution suited for all nations, including Iraq. This highly reputable company founded by entrepreneurial visionaries, and neuroscience and technical experts aims to aid nations in their efforts to protect their citizens.

Counterterrorism authorities can utilize Brainwave Science’s iCognative solution to determine if an individual’s memory contains specific knowledge of any fact or situation, such as the details of a crime scene, bomb-making knowledge, or the inner workings of a terrorist organization. Significant specific crime or event related evidences, or items associated with those activities, are recognized by the individual’s brain months or even years later. Human brain emits an involuntary response known as a P300/P300 MERMER universally accepted by Neuroscientists as a phenomenon that occurs at the time of recognition of something.  It is a powerful solution to help justify cause for further investigation on leads where evidence is unavailable.

Brainwave Science iCognative can be used to test any suspect, witness or person of interest involved or relevant to a terrorist crime or action. Let’s take, for example, an individual or group of suspects from Iraq. In the current case of bomb blasts in Baghdad, investigators can use iCognative technology to conduct tests on suspects that they have in their captivity. Investigators can use information collected by intelligence along with other details such as place/location of bomb exposure, type of bomb used, members of groups actively participated in bomb making, information about specific modus operandi in such bomb blasts etc. along with other unknown facts can be used.

At the end the test, the system analyses collected brain’s response to each stimulus and determines with over 99% accuracy if the information is present in the suspect’s brain or not. This technology is incomparable to any other existing security solution. With iCognative, Iraqi law enforcement will be able to stay one step ahead of terrorists and the knowledge that they are using such advanced technology in their fight against terrorism might very well be a deterrent for all those planning to join terrorist groups and harm humanity.
