Twin bomb attacks occurred in and around Iraqi capital, leaving more than nine people dead, police and medical sources said on Saturday.  

In the first attack, a suicide bomber targeted a military checkpoint in Tarmiya district north of Baghdad, killing five security officers and injuring one civilian.

Following the suicide bombing in Tarmiya, three people died and 15 were wounded in Duwanim and Nahrawan areas of southern Baghdad, after a twin bomb attack, according to Iraqi sources.

In addition, Iraqi forces announced on Saturday that three bodies who were shot in the head and chest were found in northern part of the capital.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks yet.

However, Iraqi officials are considering DAESH to be responsible for the attacks, due to it being the only organization who has carried out similar attacks in the region.

On Friday, three blasts hit Baghdad’s Saba al Boor, Tarmiya and Maidan areas, killing at least six people and injuring 18 others, according to Iraqi security officials.
