“Obscene” civilian death toll in Iraq

“Obscene” civilian death toll in Iraq


At least 18,800 civilians were killed in Iraq between January 2014 and October 2015, according to a new report released by the United Nations.

The Middle Eastern country continues to suffer internal conflict, largely due to the ongoing occupation by the ISIL terrorist group.

The UN has described the death toll as “obscene.”
