Counter-insurgency operations targeting the Islamic State (IS) organisation intensified around Tikrit last week, while the group continued to conduct attacks in the wider central-northern region.
Otherwise, countrywide a total of 16 non-suicide bomb attacks left 24 people dead and 78 injured. Two additional suicide bombings left five people dead and 24 injured.
Small arms attacks left 20 people dead and 14 injured, including members of the security forces shot during clashes with militants.
Indirect fire incidents (rockets, mortars and military artillery shelling) left four people dead and 16 injured.
At least 136 people were publicly executed by militants or murdered only to have their bodies later recovered by the authorities.
