Anbar came in the third place with 20 killed and 46 injured.

The total figure of September’s casualties marked an increase from the figure in August, which reached 297 Iraqis dead and wounded.

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