Saad Maan, spokesperson of the Interior Ministry, confirmed an attack by terrorists against a restaurant on the road between Dhi Qar and Basra.

The assailants opened fire before blowing up a booby-trapped car.

Meanwhile, “security troops in Basra stricted measures in the wake of the attack, which targeted the region, fearing further attacks,” the source added.

Violence in the country has surged further with the emergence of Islamic State Sunni extremist militants who proclaimed an “Islamic Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria in 2014.

A monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), which excludes security members deaths, said 297 Iraqis, were killed and injured due to violence and armed conflicts during the month of ِAugust.

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

Baghdad 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 IS-occupied areas in 2016.

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