Anbar (IraqiNews.com) Two people were wounded as a bomb blast took place in west of Anbar, a police source from the province said on Friday.

“A bomb, placed on the side on the road that leads to Rawa city, west of Anbar, went off leaving two civilians wounded,” the source told Almaalomah website, saying they were transferred to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The bomb, according to the source, “was from the remnants of war against Islamic State militant while they were in control of the city.”

Security troops “closed the entrances and exits of the blast and started combing the region fearing other blasts,” the source added.

On Thursday, four civilians were seriously injured as a bomb from the war remnants went off as some civilians were passing by al-Majmaa region, in central Rawa town.

A total of 68 Iraqis were killed and another 122 injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in Iraq in April, according to casualty figures recorded by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

As many as 3,298 civilians were killed and 4,781 others were wounded in 2017, excluding Anbar civilian casualty figures for November and December, which are not available, UNAMI said in a report in December.
