Baghdad ( Two civilians were wounded in an IED blast that occurred in northern Baghdad, a police source was quoted saying on Monday.

“A bomb, planted near stores at al-Tarmiyah region, north of Baghdad, exploded in the evening, leaving two people wounded,” the source told AlSumaria News.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the source said “police cordoned off the accident spot and transferred the injured to nearby hospitals.”

Earlier on the day, Islamic State claimed responsibility for a blast that hit eastern Baghdad, killing and injuring thirteen civilians. Another blast occurred as an IED exploded on Monday at al-Yusufiya region, in south of Baghdad, which caused death of four persons and injury of eight others, a police source told AlSumaria News.

Several explosions occurred in Baghdad on Sunday. Three civilians were killed and injured as an IED went off 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.
