Diyala (IraqiNews.com) Two fighters of the Sunni tribal mobilization forces were wounded in two bomb blasts in east of Diyala province, a local source said.

Speaking to AlSumaria News on Friday, the source said “two tribal fighters were wounded as two bombs exploded consecutively on an agricultural road near Sherwin basin, 45 KM east of Baqubah.”

Earlier on Friday, four members of one family were wounded in a bomb blast that occurred northeast of Diyala.

Attacks launched by Islamic State militants against security troops, the pro-government forces and civilians surged over the past few weeks in northeast of Diyala, which urge the Iraqi forces to prevent the militants infiltration between Salahuddin and Kirkuk provinces, especially the regions stretching along Hamreen mountains and Al-Azeem town.

IS holds pivotal regions that link between each of Diyala, Salahuddin and Kirkuk, posing threats to the liberated regions.

More than 700 Iraqis were killed and wounded during the month of June as result of violence and armed conflicts, according to a monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) which excludes security members deaths. Baghdad ranked the second place with 22 deaths and 88 injuries.

According to observers, IS is believed to constitute a security threat even after the group’s defeat at its main havens across Iraqi provinces.
