At least two militants have been killed in a bomb blast in Iraq’s restive province of Salahuddin.

According to an Iraqi security source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the incident took place on Tuesday when the militants were planting a bomb in an area in the eastern part of Tikrit.

“Today, two militants attempted to plant an explosive on the main road at al-Askari neighborhood in central Tooz district, located 90 km eastern Tikrit,” the source said, adding, “The bomb went off resulting in their death immediately.”

Takfiri militants operating in Iraq use different inhumane methods, including planting bombs, to target Iraqi forces and civilians.

On February 10, at least eight people lost their lives and 35 others sustained serious injuries in the latest wave of terrorist attacks near the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The bombing attacks took place in the rural city of Mahmoudiyah where a car bomb attack in a market claimed the lives of four people and injured 11 others, in the town of Madain where two people were killed and nine others suffered wounds, and in the town of Tarmiyah where the bomb explosion led to the deaths of two soldiers and injured five .

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

ISIL currently controls parts of both Iraq and Syria. The terrorists seized Tikrit, which is located about 130 kilometers (80 miles) north of Baghdad, in summer 2014.

Iraqi soldiers, police units, Kurdish forces, Shia volunteers and Sunni tribesmen have recently managed to drive the terrorists out of some areas in Iraq.
