A Danish citizen and an Uzbek are among the 30 suicide bombers who were recognized by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham just two days ago. At least 24 of the 30 suicide bombers have last names that indicate they are from outside Iraq.

The ISIS' "North Baghdad division" publicized the 30 suicide bombers by posting a photograph and a brief description of their attacks on its Twitter feed. The suicide bombers executed their attacks between Sept. 11, 2013 and March 6, 2014, according to the SITE Intelligence Group,

The 30 suicide bombers were involved in massed assaults as well as individual attacks against the "North Baghdad Awakening," police and army headquarters, and a prison. The attacks took place in Baghdad (including in Sadr City), Mashahada, Taji, and Tarmiyah. Among the attacks described is the Jan. 30, 2014 suicide assault on the Ministry of Transportation.

"North Baghdad" is one of several theaters where the ISIS routinely launches suicide attacks and assaults, as well as IED, small arms, and mortar and rocket attacks on a regular basis. The ISIS is also active in Anbar province, where Fallujah and other towns have been under ISIS control since the beginning of the year; and in Diyala, Salahuddin, Tikrit, and Ninewa provinces.

Of the 30 suicide bombers who were identified, the noms de guerre of 24 of them indicate that they were from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. Seven suicide bombers have the last name "al Maghribi," which denotes origins in Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, or Tunisia. Seven more are from Tunisia (al Tunisi); three are from Egypt (al Masri); three are from Syria (al Suri and al Shami); one is from Uzbekistan (al Uzbeki); one is from Afghanistan or Pakistan (al Khurasani); and one from Denmark (al Denmarki).
