Car bombing kills 2 in Iraq’s Fallujah

No group has yet claimed responsibility for attack

ANBAR, Iraq (AA) – A car bombing killed two people in Iraq’s western city of Fallujah on Sunday, according to a local police officer.

Five people were also injured when a car parked outside a gas station in Halabsa, 2 kilometers west of Fallujah, exploded, captain Ahmed al-Duleimi told Anadolu Agency.

He expected the death toll to rise as some of the injured are in a serious condition.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

Fallujah was hit by a spate of attacks claimed by Daesh terrorist group in recent weeks.

Last month, two suicide attacks hit the Sunni-majority city, killing nine people and injuring dozens.

Iraq has suffered a devastating security vacuum since mid-2014, when Daesh captured the northern city of Mosul -- now the target of a wide-ranging army offensive -- and overran vast swathes of territory in the country’s north and west.

Since then, some 58,000 people countrywide have been killed in sporadic acts of violence, according to UN figures.
