Baghdad remains the most violence province in Iraq. During the summer while the insurgents launched their offensive most attacks shifted to Anbar, Ninewa, and Salahaddin. Since then Baghdad has returned as the main target for the militant. By attacking the capital insurgents are hoping to undermine the government and stoke sectarian tensions just like they did in the 2000s. The threat faced by Baghdad has changed however from 2014 to the new year. Before the capital was repeatedly hit by waves of car bombs (vehicle borne improvised explosive devices). Now there are hardly any VBIEDs, but the number of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) has skyrocketed. Fortunately for the populace these are not able to cause as many casualties leading to the number of dead and wounded to go down in the province as attacks are going up.
