Over 3,300 Killed in Iraq during November

3,341 people were killed and 1,776 more were wounded [during November] in violent encounters across Iraq. That’s up from the 3,071 killed and 1,160 wounded in October. These numbers attempt to reflect the total number of casualties, but that may be an impossible task. Numbers from behind militant lines are difficult to accurately gauge, and the Iraqi government has been known to inflate or deflate numbers at will. They should be considered only an estimate, perhaps a low one.

Antiwar.com found that at least 482 civilians were killed and 574 were wounded during the month. Security personnel lost at least 229 members, while another 215 were wounded. According to media reports, 2,852 militants were killed and 539 were wounded.

The United Nations released its November data on Tuesday. Their Iraq personnel found 489 civilians and 399 security members were killed. They do not attempt to count militant casualties nor any casualties in Anbar province. At least 1,237 civilians and security personnel were wounded.

Combining the counts, we have 3,341 dead and 1,776 wounded.
