Iraq: 5 killed in Abu Gharib blasts

By Ibrahim Salih

 

BAGHDAD (AA) – Five Iraqis were killed in suicide bombings claimed by the Daesh terrorist group in Abu Ghraib city, west of Baghdad, on Thursday.

In a statement, Brigadier Gen. Saad Maan, a spokesman for the Baghdad operations command, said security forces had killed three suicide bombers during an attempt to force their way into a police station in Abu Ghraib.

Five people, including three policemen, were killed and 12 others injured in the attacks, medic Mahmoud Latif told Anadolu Agency.

“Three police personnel were killed in the attacks, while two civilians succumbed to wounds sustained in the bombings,” he said.

The Daesh terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks in a statement circulated on Twitter.

Thursday’s attacks came only one day after at least 89 people were killed and scores injured in Baghdad in a series of bombings for which Daesh claimed responsibility.

Iraq has been dogged by rampant insecurity since mid-2014, when Daesh overran the northern city of Mosul and declared a self-styled “caliphate” in parts of Iraq and Syria.
