A police officer has been killed and others have been injured when a booby-trapped car exploded in northern Babil, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) announced Wednesday. 

In a statement, Brigadier-General Saad Maan, spokesman of MoI, said that the security forces began to shoot at suspects boarding the car after attempting to pass Martyr Alaa checkpoint located at the entrance of al-Musayyib district in Babil Governorate. 

It turned out that that four terrorist were in the car, carrying weapons and possessing explosive devices, he added. 

A few weeks ago, eight soldiers were injured in a bomb blast that targeted a van they were riding in Alexandria neighborhood in Babil.

Iraqi cities are witnessing a state of insecurity and chaos as terror attacks target civilians.
For this reason, the security forces are conducting search and clearance operation to put an end to such attacks. 

ISIS is targeting Baghdad to make up for its losses in recently liberated cities such as Mosul and Tal Afar.
