This is August’s edition of my south Iraq SIGACT monitoring report. August saw a reduction in the rates of protest compared with July, but there was a renewed explosion of activity towards the end of the month and continuing into September. Monitoring captured 84 total incidents, down from 118 in July. Of these, 60 were protest incidents, down from July’s peak of 96 (but still well above average).
By province, the figure for protest activity broke down as follows: Basra 39; Dhi Qar 10; Maysan 3; Muthanna 14.
I am now in PhD thesis writing mode, so only have time to dump the data without any additional analysis. Find map of incidents and pivot table below.
