UN Casualty Figures for September 2014, Anbar province excluded

Baghdad, 1 October 2014 – According to casualty figures released today by UNAMI, a total of at least 1,119Iraqis were killed and another 1,946were injured in acts of terrorism and violence in September*.

The number of civilians killed was 854(including 79 civilian police), while the number of civilians injured was 1,604(including 84 civilian police).  A further 265members of the Iraqi Security Forces were killed, and 342were injured (including Peshmerga, SWAT and militias fighting alongside Iraqi Army/not including casualties from Anbar operation).

*CAVEATS: Data do not take into account casualties of the current IA operation in Anbar, for which we report separately the figures received from our sources.In general, UNAMI has been hindered in effectively verifying casualties in conflict areas. In some cases, UNAMI could only partially verify certain incidents. UNAMI has also received, without being able to verify, reports of large numbers of casualties along with unknown numbers of persons who have died from secondary effects of violence after having fled their homes due to exposure to the elements, lack of water, food, medicines and health care. For these reasons, the figures reported have to be considered as the absolute minimum.

Civilian Casualties (killed and injured) per governorate
Anbar excluded, Baghdad was the worst affected Governorate with 1,335 civilian casualties (352killed, 983 injured), followed by Salahadin(298 killed, 383 injured), Kirkuk (59 killed, 51injured), Diyala (36 killed, 71 injured), Nineveh(75 killed, 16 injured).
