Diyala (IraqiNews.com) Two persons, including an officer, were killed, while seven others were wounded in a suicide attack in northeast of the Diyala, an official said.

“Two armed militants accessed al-Jihad district in Muqdadiyah, northeast of Diyala.

They opened fire, when one of them blew himself up,” Adnan al-Tamimi, head of Muqdadiyah council, said on Saturday.

“The blast left a civilian killed and seven others wounded,” he said, adding that “security troops are currently besieging another suicide attacker there.”

Troops intervened imposing strict measures in the region, according to the source, as five mortar missiles were shelled.

“Curfew was imposed in Muqdadiyah, suspending official working hours on Sunday,” 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.

Despite the group’s defeat in its main havens across Iraqi provinces, observers believe the group may still constitute a security threat.
