At least 17 people have been killed and 28 others injured after terrorists fired at people and set off a bomb in the Nahrawan district, southeast of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, local media say.
According to Iraq’s Interior Ministry, two attackers shot several civilians in Baghdad’s Nahrawan district on Monday before one of them blew his explosives up.
The ministry, however, did not provide any casualty figures.
Daesh Takfiri terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement.
The incident comes following the collapse of the self-proclaimed caliphate of Daesh terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
On November 17, Iraqi armed forces liberated the town of Rawa near the border with Syria, which was the last remaining town under Daesh’s control, and raised the Iraqi flag over its buildings.
