As the Islamic State (IS) began to retreat in Iraq it also lost some of its important car bomb factories. Jurf al-Sakhr in Babil for example, which was lost at the end of last year was the main base for bombing southern Iraq and parts of Baghdad. That led to a steady decline in vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs) at the end of 2014. In the new year, IS has been picking up these types of attacks. This is to make up for its setbacks on the battlefield, and shows that it has been able to rebuild some of its networks.
