Diyala (IraqiNews.com) A farmer was injured in a bomb blast, northeast of Baquba in Diyala province, a local source was quoted saying on Thursday.
Speaking to Baghdad Today website, the source said “a bomb, placed near a garden at the outskirts of al-Islah village, northeast of Baquba, went off, leaving a farmer injured.”
Security forces, according to the source, who asked to remain anonymous, “transferred the injured farmer to hospital for treatment.”
A total of 75 Iraqi civilians were killed, while 179 others were injured due to acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in Iraq in September 2018, according to casualty figures by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).
Baghdad came on top of the worst affected Governorate, with 101 civilian casualties (31 killed, 70 injured), followed by Anbar (15 killed and 37 injured).
In December, Iraq announced gaining control on all the territories that were captured by Islamic State, since 2014.
Islamic State continues to launch sporadic attacks across Iraq against troops. Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses threat against stability in the country. The group still has dormant cells, through which it carries out attacks, across Iraq like it used to do before 2014.
