Terrorists kill 117, injure 264 Iraqis in Nov 2017: UN

Tehran, Dec 5, - A total of 117 Iraqi civilians were killed and another 264 injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in Iraq in November 2017.

According to casualty figures recorded by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), the number of civilians killed in November (not including police) was 114, while the number of injured (not including police) was 264.

Of those figures, Baghdad was the worst affected Governorate, with 201 civilian casualties (51 killed, 150 injured), according to a press release sent to IRNA on Tuesday by the United Nations Information Center (UNIC) in Tehran.

Salahaddin Governorate followed with 24 killed and 60 injured, and Kirkuk had 12 killed and 28 injured, while the UNAMI has not been able to obtain the civilian casualty figures from the Anbar Health Department for the month of November.

“The two bombings in Tuz Khurmatu, Salahaddin Governorate, and in Baghdad Governorate in November which caused numerous casualties among civilians are a horrible reminder that the terrorists can still inflict blows at peaceful citizens, and that all measures need to be taken by the authorities to protect civilians against the barbarism of the terrorists,” Ján Kubiš, Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (SRSG) for Iraq has said.
