Iraqi security forces killed on Wednesday a suicide bomber wearing an explosive belt on the outskirts of Jalawla in Diyala province, a provincial official was quoted as saying.

“The suicide bomber was plotting to plant explosive charges on an agricultural road on the outskirts of Jalawla, 70 km northeast of Baqubah, when the troops shot dead him,” Omar al-Karawi, a member of Diyala provincial council, told the privately-owned Baghdad Today news website.

Karawi further praised efforts exerted by the Iraqi army and security forces to foil any terrorist attack and maintain security in the province.

A total of 90 Iraqi civilians were killed, while 117 others were injured due to acts of violence and terrorism during the month of August, according to the monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

The worst affected province was Baghdad with 77 civilian casualties (24 killed and 53 injured.) Then comes Nineveh with 39 casualties (29 killed and 10 injured). Anbar came in the third place with 32 casualties (6 killed and 26 injured).

Islamic State continues to launch sporadic attacks across Iraq against troops. Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses threat against stability in the country. The group still has dormant cells, through which it carries out attacks, across Iraq like it used to do before 2014.
