At least five people have been killed in separate bomb attacks outside the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, according to security officials.

According to an Iraqi police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity on Sunday, three Iraqi civilians were killed in one of the bomb attacks which took place in an outdoor market in the town of Mahmudiyah, about 30 kilometers (18 miles) south of Baghdad.

The police official said at least nine other people sustained injuries in the deadly attack.

Another official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said that a second bomb went off in the town of Madain, about 20 kilometers (14 miles) southeast of the capital, killing two tribal fighters and wounding three other people.

Iraqi medical official have also confirmed the casualties.

No group or individual has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the Takfiri ISIL terrorist group has on several occasions claimed such terrorist operations across Iraq over the past few months.

On June 15, at least 10 people were killed in a car bomb explosion near a market in Baghdad. Police said the bomb attack was carried out when a vehicle with the explosives hit a market in Baghdad’s Qahira neighborhood.

The northern and western parts of Iraq have been experiencing ISIL violence ever since the Takfiri group began its acts of terrorism through the Iraqi territory in June 2014.

The Iraqi army, joined by volunteer fighters, has been fighting the ISIL terrorist group to flush the terrorists out of the areas they have under their control.
