At least 10 people were killed, and another was wounded in recent violence:
At least nine people were killed during an attack on Shi’ite militias in Jurf al-Sakhar (Jurf al-Nasr). Iran blamed the United States for the attack; however, officials deny any U.S. involvement, but the actual culprits may have been Islamic State militants.
In Baghdad, an old bomb at a military base exploded accidentally and killed a soldier. One person was wounded during a bombing at a liquor store; it was one of at least three attacks against liquor stores today.
