Iraq is going through a resurgence of violence with continuous attacks, especially against police and the majority Shi'ite community, which have intensified since the beginning of the sacred Muslim month of Ramadan on July 10.
A total of 1,057 Iraqis died and 2,326 were wounded last month, while since the beginning of 2013 the number of civilian fatalities alone stands at 4,137, according to figures published last Aug. 1 by the U.N. mission in Baghdad.
