Baghdad:At least 60 people dead and 65 others injured in a series of terror attacks across Iraq as violence continues unabated in the Arab country.

A huge car bomb blast that targeted a police checkpoint in Iraq’s central province of Babil on Sunday left at least 60 people dead while over 65 others suffered injuries.

A separate bombing hit a military base in an area in the town of Abu Ghraib, some 25 kilometers (15 miles) west of the capital Baghdad, killing two Iraqi soldiers and injuring five.

An explosion in the town of Saab al-Bour, located approximately 29 kilometers (18 miles) northwest of the capital, left two people dead.

There were no immediate claim of responsibility for the acts of violence. However, Iraqi officials usually blame such attacks on the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group.

The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by violence ever since Daesh Takfiri militants began their march through the Iraqi territory in June 2014.
