New Security Statistics For Iraq April 1 to July 21, 2009

The new Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) quarterly report to Congress has been released and includes new details on the security situation in Iraq. The report has a calendar recording the number of Iraqi casualties by day. It notes that while the number of monthly attacks has stayed at a low level from January to July 2009, mass-casualty attacks have led to an increase in Iraqi casualties. June 20-24 was the deadliest period recorded in the second quarter of 2009 with 136 Iraqis killed and more than 300 wounded in bombings. As noted several times before, attacks and deaths dropped in the second half of 2008 as the January 2009 provincial elections neared. The average number of security incidents for example, went from 1,715.5 from July to September 2008 to 323.0 from January to March 2009. From April to July 24 there was a slight increase to an average of 396.7 attacks per month. This is the new ebb and flow of violence in Iraq, which closely follows major political events.

Below is the statistics provided by the SIGIR.
