At least 25 people have been killed in two bomb blasts in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, as violence rages on in the Arab country.

Police officials said on Saturday that the first attack took place in the New Baghdad section of the city when an assailant targeted a busy street. The blast killed 14 people and wounded at least 38 others.

In the second assault that occurred shortly afterwards in a Baghdad market, 11 people died while 26 sustained injuries.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombings. However, Iraqi officials usually blame such attacks on the ISIL Takfiri terrorists.

The bombings follow Premier Haider al-Abadi's decision to lift Baghdad's curfew as of midnight Sunday.

The ISIL Takfiri group launched an offensive in Iraq in June 2014 and took control of the country’s second largest city, Mosul, before sweeping through parts of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland.

The extremist group has threatened all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians, during its advances in the violence-torn Arab state.
