Iraq’s insurgents continued to carry out a high level of activity in the third week of January 2015. Security incidents went down from August to December, but have picked up since then. On the other hand, pro-government forces were on the offensive in Diyala, Ninewa and Salahaddin for the week. In the second half of 2014 the security forces, militias and peshmerga regained the initiative and began retaking lost territory, while the insurgency cooled off as it usually does at the end of the year. Now Iraq may be witnessing both forces simultaneously launching attacks throughout the center of the country.
