Overview
Olive Groups Iraq statistics are drawn from multiple sources, including media reporting and direct liaison with in country assets. Included within the statistics are a minority sub-set of serious incidents which may not be purely attributable to insurgent/terrorist groups, such as murder, kidnappings and organised crime activities.
The total number of reported incidents in Iraq for the period 14 20 January 2013 was 212.* This is statistically the highest figure of the last 12 months and marks a return to exceptionally busy reporting following a brief lull last week.* The North Central Region constituted the largest proportion of this increase; however the North, Baghdad and South Central regions also recorded above average levels.* Interestingly, the recent high figures have come in the absence of a well-defined attack series, which generally accounted for high weekly totals in 2012.* Rather it appears that insurgents may be seeking to maintain smaller, but more frequent rates of activity.*
