25 Iraqis Killed, Dozens Injured in another Massive Blast in Baghdad City

At least 25 people have been killed and dozens of others injured after a powerful car bomb explosion struck a busy market in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The vegetable market, located in the northern neighborhood of Rashidiyah, was crowded with people when it came under attack on Tuesday morning.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the fatal incident.

Baghdad has seen a dramatic rise in such terror attacks over the past weeks, most of them claimed by the Takfiri Daesh terror group.

In the deadliest incident, nearly 300 people lost their lives after a bomber detonated an explosives-rigged vehicle at a shopping district in the Iraqi capital’s Karrada neighborhood. Daesh claimed that assault.

The Karrada bombing is said to be the deadliest to hit the city since the US-led invasion of the country in 2003.

On Thursday, at least 37 civilians lost their lives and 62 others were injured when ISIS militants carried out a bombing and shooting attack near a holy Shia mausoleum north of Baghdad.

The fresh wave of violence in Baghdad prompted Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to sack a number of high-ranking officials responsible for security in the capital, including the head of the Baghdad Operations Command.

According to the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq, a total of 662 Iraqis were killed and another 1,457 wounded in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in June, Press TV reported.
