Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) – Seven Iraqi people were wounded Monday in two bomb explosions in northern Baghdad, a security source said.
Speaking to Alsumaria News, the source said that a roadside bomb exploded in al Shaab area, north of Baghdad, leaving two civilians wounded.
Two other explosive charges went off in al Shorta and al A’lam districts in southern Baghdad, leaving five people wounded, the source added.
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.
The surge in violence between armed groups and government forces has resulted in over five million internally displaced persons across Iraq and left more than 11 million in need of humanitarian assistance, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
