- UN Casualty Figures for Iraq for the Month April 2018
Baghdad, 02 May 2018 – A total of 68 Iraqi civilians were killed and another 122 injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in Iraq in April 2018*, according to casualty figures recorded by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).
The figures include ordinary citizens and others considered civilian at the time of death or injury, such as police in non-combat functions, civil defense, personal security teams, facilities protection police and fire department personnel.
Of the overall figures recorded by UNAMI for the month of April, the number of civilians killed (not including police) was 64, while the number of injured (not including police) was 121.
Anbar was the worst affected Governorate, with 53 civilian casualties (24 killed, 29 injured), followed by Baghdad with 8 killed and 30 injured, and Kirkuk with 10 killed and 21 injured.
“The casualty figures reported continue steadily to decline after the military defeat of Dae’sh last year. This is good news, but the best news will be when Iraq is completely free of the threat of terrorism and is at peace,” said the Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) for Iraq Ján Kubiš.
