Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) Two people were wounded as a bomb blast took place in southwestern Baghdad, a police source said on Thursday.

Speaking to AlSumaria News, the source said, “a bomb placed near stores at al-Furat district, southwest of Baghdad, exploded in the afternoon leaving two people wounded.”

“Security troops transferred the wounded to nearby hospital for treatment and conducted investigations,” the source, who preferred anonymity, added.

In December, Abadi announced full liberation of Iraqi lands, declaring end of war against IS members.

Baghdad 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.

A total of 115 Iraqi civilians, excluding policemen, were killed and another 250 injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in Iraq in January 2018, according to casualty figures recorded by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

Baghdad was the worst affected governorate, with 323 civilian casualties (90 killed, 233 injured).

Diyala followed, with 8 killed and 15 injured; and Nineveh, with 13 killed and 7 injured.

As many as 3,298 civilians were killed and 4,781 others were wounded in 2017, excluding Anbar civilian casualty figures for November and December, which are not available, UNAMI said in a report in December.
