Security In Iraq Sep 15-21, 2023


The Islamic State was barely active for another week in Iraq. From September 15-21 there were only 2 incidents. The week before there was 1 and the first week of the month there was 1 as well. This was the 32nd straight week and the 34th of 35 weeks during the year where there was single digit incidents.

 

In the Tarmiya district of northern Baghdad province the Islamic State attacked some civilians and left two wounded. This is a longtime insurgent base and the militants were likely trying to keep people out of the area. This was the first incident in Baghdad since the middle of May.

 

2 soldiers were wounded by an IED in the Hamrin Mountains in Diyala. Again, this is an IS area and an insurgent transit route between Diyala and Salahaddin.
