On Sunday, six people were killed and 16 others sustained injuries in an explosion that rocked the district of Eskan in western Baghdad.

Iraq’s Shafaq News reported that the casualties came as an assailant set off his explosives among a crowd of people.

The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by gruesome violence ever since Daesh terrorists mounted an offensive in June 2014. The Iraqi army and fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units have been engaged in joint operations to retake militant-held areas.

The Iraqi forces are said to be gearing up for an offensive in early October to liberate Mosul, the last remaining bastion for the terror group in the north of the country.
