Baghdad, IRAQ –Six civilians were wounded in an IED blast in southwestern Baghdad, according to security sources.

“An IED, placed near a market in al-Dawanem region exploded on Monday, leaving six persons wounded,” the source told Alghad Press on Monday.

“Police cordoned off the blast spot, while ambulances transferred the wounded to hospital for treatment,” the source added.

Also, six persons were killed and injured in two blasts in north and west of Baghdad, a security source was quoted saying.

“An IED exploded near a market in Khan Dhari in Abu Ghraib region, west of Baghdad, leaving a civilian killed and four others wounded,” the source told Baghdad Today on Tuesday.

“Another bomb targeted an army patrol in al-Houra village in Tarmiyah, north of Baghdad, leaving one person injured,” the source said.

Ambulances transferred the wounded to hospital and the victim to forensic medicine department, the source said.

Violence in the country has surged further with the emergence of Islamic State Sunni extremist militants who proclaimed an “Islamic Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria in 2014, IraqiNews reports.

A monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), which excludes security members deaths, said 297 Iraqis, were killed and injured due to violence and armed conflicts during the month of ِAugust. Baghdad was the most affected province with 45 deaths and 135 injuries.

Baghdad has seen almost daily bombings and armed attacks against security members, paramilitary groups and civilians since the Iraqi government launched a wide-scale campaign to retake IS-occupied areas in 2016. While most of of the explosions and attacks went without a claim of responsibility, Islamic State has claimed several incidents.

Meanwhile in Kirkuk, Islamic State militants suddenly evacuated checkpoints in southwest of Kirkuk, a local source from the province said on Sunday.

“Tens of ISIS fighters collectively evacuated several checkpoints in Hawija, southwestern Kirkuk, under mysterious circumstances,” the source told Alghad Press.

The militants, according to the source, “withdrew from sprawling regions on borders with Salahuddin province located near to oilfields.” The reasons behind the evacuation are unknown.

In related news, two huge blasts were heard in the town, a local source from the province said, adding that one of them targeted an ISIS convoy, Iraqi News reported.

“The blasts resulted from airstrikes, one of them targeted an ISIS armed convoy,” the source told AlSumaria News indicating news on casualties.

The militant group, according to the source, who preferred anonymity, “has been on high alert in Hawija.”

Hawija and other neighboring regions, west of Kirkuk, have been held by IS since mid-2014, when the group emerged to proclaim an Islamic “caliphate” in Iraq and Syria. The group executed dozens of civilians and security members there, forcing thousands to flee homes.

On Saturday, further reinforcements from the Federal Police were sent from Baghdad to the town, as the military command declared last week, the end of operations in Tal Afar, the militants’ last haven west of Nineveh, and the approach of the launch of offensives for Hawija.

On Thursday, Iraqi army planes airdropped millions of messages on Hawija telling them that operations to recapture the stronghold were nearing, according to the War Media Cell.

Some security observers believe that even after IS’s main havens across Iraqi provinces are conquered, the group may still constitute a security threat through sleeper cells and lone wolf attacks.

The carnage continues…

God Bless.
