941 Iraqi civilians killed in November:
110 Killed in Coalition Air Strikes
65 Bodies Found
Some 941 Iraqi civilians were killed in November, according to Iraq Body Count. The toll included 323 people executed including 6 doctors and 12 university students in Dash-controlled Mosul. Additionally, 65 corpses were found throughout the conflict zone, while 117 others were killed in Iraqi and Coalition airstrikes including 28 children who were killed in a French airstrike on Mosul last Wednesday (Nov. 24).
According to the UN Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), a total of at least 888 Iraqis were killed and another 1,237 were wounded in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in November 2015*.
- At least 489 civilians were among those killed, and 869 others wounded, said the report.
- A further 399 members of the Iraqi Security Forces (including Peshmerga, SWAT and militias fighting alongside the Iraqi Army / Not including casualties from Anbar Operations) were killed and 368 were wounded.
* CAVEATS: In general, UNAMI has been hindered in effectively verifying casualties in conflict areas. UNAMI could not obtain the casualty figures for the month of November from Anbar. 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.
