Iraq Situation Report: November 8-14
ISW is assessing the ongoing unrest and its effects on political-security dynamics in Iraq. The Iraq Situation Report (SITREP) map series summarizes key events and likely developments to come. The following set of SITREP maps, by Brandon Wallace, covers the period November 8-14, 2019.
Iraq SITREP: November 8-11Key Takeaway (November 8-11): A new round of political activity began after a brutal crackdown against protesters from November 7 to 9. The Iraqi parliament met twice on November 9 and 11. The UN and Iran introduced competing reform initiatives while the US put its weight behind the Iraqi President’s effort to hold a new election. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister’s Office accused protesters in Baghdad of manufacturing explosives in a likely attempt to discredit the protests, and more dangerously, to justify further crackdown.

Iraq SITREP: November 12-14Key Takeaway (November 12-14): The Iraqi government lifted the internet curfew on November 12 after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Prime Minister Mehdi to condemn the rising death toll among protesters and to pressure Iraq to grant the protesters’ demands. Protesters resumed the disruption of oil production in Basra, including re-imposing a blockade of the Umm Qasr port and blocking access to the Majnoon Oil Field North of Basra on November 14. These protests threaten to disrupt Iraq’s economy again and may trigger a renewed crackdown.
