(Iraq Now News)- An explosion in Baghdad.

Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) A paramilitary fighter was killed and two others were wounded on Tuesday when a bomb exploded in a southern Baghdad area, according to a police source.

Alsumaria News quoted the source saying that a member of the Tribal Mobilization was killed while two others were wounded when a roadside bomb went off while their patrol was passing through arab Jabbour area, Dora, south of the capital.

Violence and armed conflicts left 297 Iraqis dead and wounded during the month of ِAugust, according to a monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq which excludes security members deaths.

Baghdad was the most affected province with 45 deaths and 135 injuries.

The Iraqi capital has seen almost daily bombings and armed attacks against security members, paramilitary groups and civilians since the Iraqi government launched a wide-scale campaign to retake Islamic State-occupied areas in 2016.

While most of of the explosions and attacks went without a claim of responsibility, Islamic State has claimed several incidents.

Some security observers believe that even after IS’s main havens across Iraqi provinces are conquered, the group may still constitute a security threat through sleeper cells and lone wolf attacks.
