At least 25 people are killed and 69 others are wounded in terrorist bomb attacks in different neighborhoods in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.

In one attack on Friday, an assailant detonated his explosive-laden vest at a funeral of a Shia fighter killed in Anbar Province in the battle against the ISIS Takfiri terrorists.

A police official told the Associated Press that at least 18 people were killed and 41 wounded in the blast carried out in the capital's southwestern suburb of Hay al-Amal.

Also in the capital, two bomb attacks on a Shia shrine in Sadr City left seven people dead and nearly 30 others wounded.

No group or individual has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks. However, in the past, the ISIS Takfiri group have in the past been behind similar attacks.

The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by the ISIS terrorists, who began their spread of terror through some parts of the Iraqi territory in June 2014.

Army soldiers and Popular Mobilization Units have teamed up to take back militant-held regions.

The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq says a total of 717 Iraqis were killed and another 1,216 wounded in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in September alone.

According to the UN mission, the number of civilian fatalities stood at 537. Violence also claimed the lives of 180 members of the Iraqi security forces. A great portion of the fatalities was recorded in Baghdad, where 257 civilians were killed; Press TV reported.
