South Iraq Security Report: June 2018

This is June’s edition of my south Iraq SIGACT monitoring and analysis report. Monitoring in June captured a total of 78 incidents, 15 killed, and 23 injured. This represents a significant increase in incidents and rates of violence from the previous month when there was 53 incidents, 15 killed, and 10 injured. As I outlined in May’s report, the previous month had seen rates of violence more than double since their nadir in March. A further jump in serious violent incidents and tribal fighting incidents compounded a deteriorating physical and political risk landscape.

Monitoring parameters were as follows:
> Serious violent incidents
> Tribal fighting
> Terrorism
> Protest activity
> Kidnapping
> Arms trafficking
> Maritime incidents
