Only hours after the US welcomed a new president into the White House, the Iraqi capital was rocked with two deadly suicide bombings that resulted in at least 32 deaths and hundreds of injuries. The attack which was attributed to ISIS sparked discussion over the new administration policy towards Iraq and whether or not the terrorist group has timed its attack to coincide with the start of the Biden administration.
Under Biden’s administration (cabinet full of people who are ethnically invested in the supremacy of Israel), the US military is attacking Assad & Syria again... so suddenly, after nothing for all of Trump’s presidency, ISIS is back.— CEO Erick Hayden (@CEOErickHayden) January 24, 2021

News of the escalating attacks by ISIS against Iraqi civilians and government-affiliated militant groups prompted much speculation and conspiracy theories regarding the timing and what they constitute, paving the way for the return of ISIS on the geographical scene.
Social media users widely shared news of the Baghdad attacks since Thursday, labeling it as one of the worst in the city over the last few years, wondering whether or not it carries any political messages to the new US administration.

Apparently Biden will immediately be sending troops back to Iraq and Syria. The system is fully in control again, war with Iran and provocation of Russia are far more likely now. This will mean more funding of "moderate rebels" aka ISIS, to overthrow the Assad regime.— Drew 2.0 (@StokieDrew) January 24, 2021
Some online commentators argued such attacks might have been intentionally allowed to take place it justify the return of US troops to Iraq that were withdrawn by the former Trump administration less than a year ago. Some tweets also went on to accuse the Biden administration of "funding groups like ISIS" to overthrow the Russian-backed Assad regime in Syria.
On Saturday night, ISIS also attacked al-Hashd al-Shaabi forces, killing 11 militants and injuring 8 others in the Saladin Governorate.
