(Iraq News)- Bomb blast in eastern Baghdad Ebeidi region.

Baghdad ( Two persons were injured due to blast that occurred near a market in northern Baghdad, security source said on Monday.

“A roadside bomb placed near a market on Taji district left two persons injured,” the source told Al-Ghad Press.

On Sunday, three other persons were wounded as an IED exploded in Gisr Diyala region, southeastern Baghdad.

Violence in the country left 1115 casualties, excluding security members, during March, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) said.

Baghdad was the second most affected province with 84 deaths and 246 injuries, according to the organization’s monthly casualty count.

Islamic State militants said they had been behind some bloody explosions and attacks that hit the capital in the past months, leaving casualties among civilians and security troops.

However, several blasts are not followed by a claim of responsibility.

Islamic State is believed to have begun escalating attacks outside the city of Mosul, where the group has been losing ground and personnel since October, so as to relieve pressure by government forces on that front and to divert attention from group losses.

Moreover, observers argue that attacks outside the city prove that the extremist group can still pose a security threat for all cities.
