Iraq saw a considerable increase in casualties in March 2014. While the number of attacks has remained relatively the same since January the number of dead and wounded reached their highest marks last month. That was largely due to an increase in fighting in Anbar and Salahaddin, which have become two hotbeds of insurgent activity. More importantly the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) is becoming bolder, and it along with the Naqshibandi and its Military Councils are moving into the areas surrounding the capital known as the Baghdad belts. The insurgents are establishing bases there, which are then used to launch attacks into the city of Baghdad and the south. It is only a matter of time before the bombings in Baghdad turn to street fighting.
