Yet another terror attack has left at least 23 dead and dozens more wounded.

Militants on Sunday unleashed dual car bomb attacks in southern Iraq, killing at least 23 people and wounding dozens, officials said, at a time when the country’s government is struggling with mounting public unrest in the capital over delays in promised reform plans, FOX reports.

A police officer said two parked explosives-laden cars were detonated within minutes of each other around midday in the city of Samawah. The first one near government offices, while the second exploded minutes later at an open-air bus station. At least 42 other people were wounded in both explosions and the police official said the death toll was expected to rise.

A medical official confirmed the causality figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.

The Shiite-dominated city is located some 230 miles south of the capital, Baghdad.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but it bore the hallmarks of the Islamic State group. Commercial areas and public spaces in majority-Shiite towns and neighborhoods are among the most frequent targets for the militants, who view Shiite Muslims as apostates and seek to undermine government efforts to maintain security inside the capital.

The attacks came hours after Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi ordered authorities to arrest and prosecute protesters who attacked security forces, lawmakers and damaged state property after breaking into Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone to protest delays in reform plans.

Just yesterday America’s Freedom Fighters reported that at least 24 people were killed an 42 others were wounded by a car bomb terror attack in Baghdad.

Iraq has been mired in a political crisis for months, hindering the government’s ability to combat the Islamic State group — which still controls large areas of the country’s north and west — or address a financial crisis largely prompted by the plunge in global oil prices.

This is a developing story.

We will keep you updated as more details emerge.

God Bless.
