Mosul (IraqiNews.com) Three persons were killed as gunmen opened fire in south of Mosul, security source said on Wednesday.

“Unidentified gunmen killed two persons and a child as they opened fire against them in al-Eraij village, Hammam al-Alil region, south of Mosul,” the source told Shafaq News.

“One of the victims was a tribal fighter,” the source, who preferred anonymity, added.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared, in July, victory over IS militants who had held the second largest Iraqi city since 2014.

More than 25000 militants were killed throughout the campaign, which started in October 2016.

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.

114 Iraqi civilians were killed, while 244 others were wounded as result of terrorism, violence and armed conflicts, according to a monthly release by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), issued on Wednesday.

Baghdad was the worst affected Governorate, coming in the first place with 177 civilian casualties (38 killed, 139 injured).

Anbar province followed with 36 killed and 55 injured, and then Kirkuk with 18 killed and 33 injured.

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