The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the deadliest of the Tuesday attacks took place on Palestine Street in eastern Baghdad, when a car rigged with explosives went off near restaurants and shops, killing 10 people, including three women. The bombing also wounded 24 people.

Earlier in the day, three soldiers and one civilian lost their lives when a roadside bomb struck an army patrol in the township of Yusufiyah, located about 32 kilometers (20 miles) south of Baghdad. At least eight people sustained injuries in the attack.

Separately, two civilians were killed and four others injured, when a blast ripped through a commercial street in the capital’s southern Seyyediah neighborhood.

A bomb also went off near an outdoor market in al-A’amiriya neighborhood of western Baghdad, killing a civilian and wounding 11 others.

Moreover, one person was killed and six others injured as a bomb explosion occurred near a video gaming center in the city of Madain, located 32 kilometers (20 miles) southeast of Baghdad.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attacks.

A total of 1,031 Iraqis were killed and another 1,684 wounded in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in May. The number of civilian fatalities stood at 665, according to the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

The UN mission added that 366 members of the Iraqi security forces also lost their lives in the violence. A great portion of the fatalities was recorded in Baghdad, where 343 civilians were killed.

The northern and western parts of Iraq have faced gruesome violence ever since ISIL Takfiris launched an offensive through Iraqi territory in June 2014. Units of army soldiers together with volunteer fighters are seeking to win back militant-held regions in joint operations.
