Civilian Deaths in the Iraq War

Civilian casualties are the deaths of non-military individuals as a result of military operations. The number of documented civilian deaths in the Iraq war peaked in 2006 at 29 thousand casualties. Since then, the number had fallen to five thousand casualties documented in the year 2012, and has been on the rise since then.

The Iraq war was launched in March 2003 upon the invasion of Iraq by US forces. Eight years later, in December 2011, the US formally declared and end to the Iraq war. From the start of the war in 2003 until September 30, 2015, it is estimated that the United States spent a total of over 819 billion US dollars on war costs in Iraq.

Spending was highest in 2008, that year over 142 billion US dollars were spent in Iraq by the United States government. As of 2017, about 33,290 US active-duty military personnel were deployed in North Africa, the Near East and South Asia.
