Baku-APA. Security and medical sources say at least six people, mostly soldiers, have been killed and 10 others wounded in separate bomb attacks across Iraq, APA reports quoting Press TV.

In the deadliest attack of the day, five Iraqi soldiers were killed when a roadside bomb exploded near their vehicle in Dhuluiyah north of Baghdad on Saturday.

In a separate incident, one person was killed and two others were wounded after a roadside bomb went off in the north of Baquba.

Another eight people, including four security forces members, were wounded by a roadside bomb in Mosul in north Iraq.

Security forces are a prime target for militants seeking to shed blood and create chaos in Iraq.

On Wednesday, a policeman was killed and two others were injured after militants shelled a police station in Hibhib, north of the capital, while two soldiers were killed in an attack on an army checkpoint in northern city of Mosul.

Bombings and shootings have recently increased across Iraq and many believe that the attacks aim at undermining the central government.

Official figures show that July was the bloodiest month in Iraq in almost two years. The figures put the number of people killed in attacks in July at 325, the highest monthly death toll since August 2010.
