Baghdad ( Five people were killed and injured in two bomb blasts in north of the capital Baghdad, security sources said on Monday.

Speaking to AlSumaria News, the source said “the explosion of the two bombs, which went off this evening, in al-Shaab region reached a victim and four wounded people.”

The injured were taken to hospital for treatment, the source, who preferred anonymity, added.

Earlier today, a source said two people were injured as two bombs went off at al-Shaab region. Two vehicles were destroyed.

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 was the worst affected province, with 101 civilian casualties (31 killed, 70 injured), followed by Anbar (15 killed and 37 injured) and Salahuddin (09 killed and 38 injured).

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.

In December, the Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi announced gaining control on all the territories that were captured by Islamic State, since 2014.
