At least eight people have been killed and several others injured in two car bomb attacks at security checkpoints in Iraq’s western city of Fallujah in western Anbar province.

Iraq's Arabic-language al-Sumaria television network reported that the first attack was carried out by an assailant, who detonated his explosives-laden car at a security checkpoint in western Fallujah on Sunday evening.

The second attack was carried out shortly after the first when some explosive devices were detonated in a parked car in the central areas of Fallujah near another security checkpoint and a busy restaurant.  

The report added that most of the victims were security officers.

Amaq news agency, which is affiliated to the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group, said in a statement that both attacks were carried out by the terror group.

Fallujah fell to Daesh in January 2014 and suffered major population loss but it was fully liberated by Iraq's army in June this year.

Meanwhile, another car bomb attack killed one person and injured at least five others east of the capital Baghdad.

Iraqi army soldiers and their allied forces launched joint operations on October 17 to liberate Mosul, which is the last bastion of Daesh in the Arab country.

Iraqi forces advance has been slowed down due to the presence of hundreds of thousands of civilians, many of whom are prevented from leaving Mosul by Daesh.
