Tara fares death: Iraqi Model Shot Dead In Baghdad

Tara fares, An Iraqi model and social media influencer has been shot dead by unknown attackers in Baghdad.

Tara Fares, a prominent former beauty queen with nearly 3 million followers on Instagram, was killed after gunmen opened fire on her on Thursday in the city’s Kam Sara neighbourhood.

The Interior Ministry announced it had opened an investigation into the model’s death, according to Kurdistan 24.

Ms Fares’ body was taken to Baghdad’s Sheikh Zaid hospital at 5.45am local time. Doctors told local media she had died after suffering three bullet wounds.

The 22-year-old lived in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, but regularly visited Baghdad.

Fans began posting across social media after her death was confirmed, with many celebrating her outspokenness in a country that can still have conservative attitudes towards women.

“Tara’s death screams discrimination, lack of freedom and rights,” wrote one fan. “Sympathy is not enough.”

It is unclear who killed Ms Fares.

Her death comes just days after the death of Suad al-ali, an Iraqi human rights activist who was shot and killed in her car in the southern city of Basra.

    I call BS to this story and every other mainstream media story.

    Talleyrand said, “Agiter le peuple avant de s’en servir.” “Rattle the population before using it.”

    And that’s what these “stories” are meant to do.

    BUT PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP!
