ABSTRACT
The article reports on the warning posed by the jihadist assault that freed convicts from Taji and Abu Gharab prisons in Iraq. It notes the coincidence of the jailbreak with the dangerous time in the country since the U.S. withdrawal in 2011. It is predicted that the convicts may only reinforce the attacks of Sunni against Shiite targets. It is viewed as an opportunity for Sunni militants to destabilize Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
