1,282 Dead and 425 Wounded In Iraq, November 2017


Iraq is witnessing the lowest levels of violence since the overthrow of the Saddam regime in 2003. The Islamic State is on the run and regrouping and barely carrying out operations anymore. The insurgents are most active in Baghdad and Ninewa, and even there are only carrying out on average of about 2 attacks per day. In the other major provinces where the group maintains a presence, Anbar, Diyala, Kirkuk and Salahaddin there is only an average of around 1 incident per day.

As a result, casualties remain at extremely low levels. In Baghdad province for instance, you had two weeks in November with single digit death counts. There was one week during the month where there were no dead or wounded reported in Kirkuk. The number of fatalities remains high due to mass graves being discovered every few weeks, a lasting reminder of the rule of the Islamic State. During the month, 910 bodies were found in Anbar, Kirkuk, Ninewa, and Salahaddin. That left 372 people killed by violence in November.

What that leaves the Iraqi government to do is restore governance in the areas liberated from the insurgency, rebuild the vast areas destroyed during the fighting, rebuild the local security forces, and create a permanent presence across central Iraq, so that IS does not make a comeback another time. Unfortunately, much of this appears to be beyond the capability of the authorities. With elections coming in 2018 there is even less incentive for politicians to do anything substantive.
