“Three civilians were wounded after an IED from the Islamic State’s war remnants exploded, while leaving the Old City of Mosul,” the source said.

Earlier today, one civilian was wounded in an improvised explosive device (IED) explosion, northeast of Diyala Province, Alsumaria News reported.

On Friday, two fighters of the Sunni tribal mobilization forces were wounded as two bombs exploded consecutively on an agricultural road near Sherwin basin, 45 KM east of Baqubah.

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

More than 700 Iraqis were killed and wounded during 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.

It is noteworthy that Baghdad ranked in the second place with 22 deaths and 88 injuries.
