At least eight people were killed and 11 more wounded Wednesday after a suicide bomber exploded his car at a police checkpoint north of Baghdad, Iraqi officials said, just a day after a similar deadly attack took place in the same district.

The bomber reportedly slammed his car, which was loaded with explosives, into the checkpoint in northeastern al-Rashidiya district, a predominantly Shiite neighborhood. The Islamic State group released a statement shortly after the attack claiming responsibility.

In the attack Tuesday, at least 12 people were killed after a suicide car bomber blew himself up near a crowded fruit and vegetable market. Police were forced to shut down several major roads around Baghdad as a result of the attack.

IS attacks have occurred with more frequency as of late, which prompted U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter earlier this week to commit 560 more U.S. troops to Iraq to help fight the terrorist group.
