Blasts Claim Casualties in Baghdad


Baghdad: At least six people have lost their lives and 26 others injured in three bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. Iraq’s Interior Ministry said the explosions took place in Sadr City in east Baghdad on Sunday. Reports also indicate that the number of fatalities is likely to rise.

Separately, a booby trap bomb injured five other Iraqis near a local market in Abu Ghraib district in western Baghdad. No group or individual has taken responsibility for the attacks. However, the Takfiri Daesh terrorists are often blamed for such attacks.

The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by the Daesh terrorists, who began their spread of terror through some parts of the Iraqi territory in June 2014. Army soldiers and Popular Mobilization Units have teamed up to take back militant-held regions.

The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq says a total of 717 Iraqis were killed and another 1,216 wounded in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in September alone.
