Bomb Blast Hits Hashd al-Shaabi Checkpoint in Babil

ERBIL - A bomb explosion on Tuesday targeted a checkpoint of the Iran-backed Hashd al-Shaabi in Iraq's Babil province, a security source said.

The explosive device went off near the checkpoint located in Abd Weiss area of Jurf al-Sakhar district, north of Babel province, leaving two militiamen wounded, the source told Shafaq News.

No terrorist organisations were immediately blamed for the bombing with no claims of responsibility yet either.

However, the Islamic State (IS) remains the main suspect to be behind the incident as the jihadist group still poses a serious threat to the security forces and civilians in different areas of Iraq.
