A series of recent attacks have pushed the death toll for 2013 past the 7,000 mark, according to the casualty database Iraq Body Count. It is the highest annual figure since Iraq was recovering from a sectarian civil war five years ago in the wake of the U.S.-led invasion to topple Saddam Hussein.
The year's death toll reached 7,000 on Oct. 20 when a blast in a Baghdad cafe and several improvised explosive devices across the country killed at least 80 people, according to Iraq Body Count.
On Sunday alone, car bombings in Baghdad, an explosion at a market, and a suicide bomber assault on soldiers lining up for their pay in the north of the country killed at least 66 people.
the most violent civilian deaths in Iraq is 2006, when 29,287 people died, 9,929 deaths in 2007, and 4,147 in 2011.
"These days are very difficult. We don’t go out at night in fear of explosions and assassinations,I do not expect things to improve with the bombings happening every day, especially now they are occurring near cafes where the youth frequent."
