Anbar (IraqiNews.com) Two civilians were wounded as a hand grenade, hurled by unidentified gunmen, exploded in west of Ramadi, a police source was quoted saying on Wednesday.“Gunmen hurled a hand grenade targeting one of the houses in al-Doulab region in Hit town, leaving two civilians wounded.

They were taken to hospital for treatment,” the source told BasNews.

“Security services headed to the blast scene in search for perpetrators, who ran away to unknown destination,” the source said adding that preliminary information indicated that the attack was ignited by a tribal conflict.

A total of 91 Iraqi civilians were killed and 208 others were injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in February, according to the monthly report issued by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

Baghdad was the worst affected Governorate, with 195 civilian casualties (49 killed, 146 injured).

Anbar Governorate ranked second place, with 14 killed and 37 injured, and Diyala had 12 killed and 11 injured.

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.

Thousands of IS militants as well as Iraqi civilians were killed since the government campaign, backed by paramilitary troops and the coalition was launched in October 2016 to fight the militant group, which declared a self-styled “caliphate” from Mosul in June 2014.
