The Daily Iraq: 3 August 2013

Iraq Body Count figures for August 2: 19 killed

IBC total to-date for August, 2013: 34 civilians killed

At least 19 killed today, making this Ramadan the bloodiest Ramadan in Iraq since 2007, much as July was the bloodiest (Gregorian) month in Iraq since 2008. Gunmen targeted a convoy transporting one of the Iraqi army’s top generals, Abd al-Amir al-Zaydi, just north of Baghdad, killing 10, and two other shootings targeted Sunni Sahwa militia (which opposes Al-Qaeda in Iraq) members in Baqouba. There were also bombings in Tikrit and Baghdad.
