RAMADI, Iraq, Dec. 11 (Xinhua) -- At least two people were killed and 12 wounded on Sunday in two coordinated suicide car bomb attacks in the city of Fallujah in Iraq's western province of Anbar, a provincial security source said.
The attacks occurred after the sunset when one suicide bomber drove his explosive-laden car into an army checkpoint and detonated it at the western entrance of Fallujah, some 50 km west of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
Minutes later, another suicide car bomber struck a local police checkpoint in central the city, the source said.
At least seven security members were among the killed and wounded people, the source added.
The toll could rise as ambulances, police and civilian vehicles were evacuating the victims to the city's hospital and medical centers, the source said.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the Islamic State (IS) militant group, in most cases, is responsible for such suicide attacks targeting crowded areas, including markets, cafes and mosques across Iraq.
Terrorist acts, violence and armed conflicts killed 2,885 Iraqis and wounded 1,380 others in November across Iraq, the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq said.
Many blame the current chronic instability, cycle of violence and the emergence of extremist groups, such as the IS, on the U.S., which invaded and occupied Iraq in March 2003.
