Baghdad ( Two civilians were killed, while seven others were wounded as three blasts occurred at several regions in the capital Baghdad, a police source said on Tuesday.

“A bomb, placed near a sheep market in Suwaib region in south Baghdad, exploded in the morning leaving two civilians killed and three others wounded,” the source told AlSumaria News.

“Another IED exploded in al-Shaab region in northern Baghdad, which left a citizen injured,” the source, who preferred anonymity, added.

“Three others were wounded as a third bomb blast occurred near stores in al-Zidan region in Abu Ghraib region, west of Baghdad,” the source added.

On Monday, Islamic State claimed responsibility for a blast that hit eastern Baghdad on the day, killing and injuring thirteen civilians. Another blast occurred as an IED exploded on Monday at al-Yusufiya region, in south of Baghdad, killing four and injuring eight.

Several explosions occurred in Baghdad earlier this week. Three civilians were killed and injured as an IED went off on Sunday at an area southwest of Baghdad. This came a few hours after two car bombings rocked two areas also southwest of Baghdad, killing and wounding eight people.

Violence and armed conflicts left more than 500 Iraqis dead and wounded during the month of July, according to a monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq which excludes security members deaths.
