(Iraq Now News)- Security forces close roads.

Anbar (IraqiNews.com) Security troops have imposed curfew in the wake of a murder of a five-member family in north of Ramadi, Anbar, a security source said on Wednesday.

“Security troops found a murdered family, composed of five persons, in al-bou Theyab island, north of Ramadi,” the source said, adding that “the family was shot dead.”

“Security cordoned off the accident spot and imposed curfew in the island,” the source, who preferred anonymity, added, indicating that the accident is not a terrorist one.

Earlier this month, curfew was imposed in the wake of a murder of a whole family in east of the city.

Anbar’s western towns of Anah, Qaim and Rawa are still held by the extremist group since 2014, when it occupied one third of Iraq to proclaim a self-styled Islamic Caliphate.

Iraqi troops were able to return life back to normal in the biggest cities of Anbar including Fallujah, Ramadi and others after recapturing them.

Fighter jets from the Iraqi army and the international coalition regularly pound IS locations in the province.

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.
