Continued fighting in Anbar and Salahaddin, along with Islamic State (IS) executions led to an increase in attacks and casualties in Iraq in the third week of April 2015. At the start of the week IS was able to seize several towns and neighborhoods of Ramadi in Anbar. Likewise in Salahaddin there was intense fighting in Baiji and the nearby refinery. Government forces spent the week trying to take back what they had lost. There were also upticks in violence in Diyala and Kirkuk, and a rare car bombing in Irbil. While IS was largely pushed back the events during the week showed that it still has large offensive capabilities.
