Although the focus remains on Turkish and Iranian bombardment of Iraqi Kurdistan, deadly violence took place further south. In particular, Anbar province was the scene of several attacks. Overall, at least nine Iraqis were killed and 39 more were wounded across the country.
At least eight Iraqis were killed, most of them in Turkish air strikes, and another 14 were wounded in attacks across the country.
At least five Iraqis were killed and four more were wounded in very light violence as al-Qaeda in Iraq has vowed to increase attacks. Meanwhile, Turkey and Iran could be gearing up for more extensive operations in northern Iraq.
At least seven Iraqis were killed and 16 more were wounded in the latest violence. Two of the fatalities occurred in Iraqi Kurdistan where tensions between Iran and Kurdish rebels reheated in the last two weeks.
At least 20 Iraqis were killed and 46 more were wounded in new violence. Few attacks were reported, but a double suicide bombing in Tikrit left many casualties.
Light violence left one Iraqi dead and six more wounded. However, it is unclear how many, if any, Iraqi casualties are occurring at the Iranian border, where Kurdish rebels are fighting against Iranian troops.
At least 10 Iraqis were killed and 52 others were wounded in the latest violence. Iranian shelling killed two Iraqi civilians and wounded three more in Sidakan. Hundreds of residents have had to abandon their homes and seek shelter from the fighting between Iranian forces and Party of a Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK) rebels.
At least six Iraqis were killed and 26 more were wounded as tensions between Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan increased.
At least 17 Iraqis were killed and six more were wounded in Sunday’s attacks. Meanwhile, members of the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) are accused of killing a Turkish soldier and wounding two other people during an attack in eastern Turkey. Meanwhile, K.A.R. President Massoud Barzani warned Iran against shelling border areas. The attacks target Party For A Free Life In Kurdistan (PJAK) rebels who, like the PKK, hide in northern Iraq and share the same goal of an independent Kurdistan.
Three bomb blasts rattled the northern city of Kirkuk just days after U.S. troops handed over a provincial base to their Iraqi counterparts and a day after the highest ranking al-Qaeda leader was captured in Samarra. At least 37 Iraqis were killed and 110 more were wounded in those attacks and others across the country.
