This is October’s edition of my south Iraq SIGACT monitoring report. October has been a relatively quiet month because of the Arbaeen celebrations. Monitoring captured a total of 42 incidents, down from 103 in September. There were 15 killed and 12 injured in October in 29 violent incidents (tribal fighting and serious violent incidents), a significant increase on the previous month when protest activity accounted for the vast majority of recorded incidents.
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.
