The security situation in the country improved following the military defeat of ISIL in late 2017, resulting in improved access for the monitoring and verifying of grave violations, including those which occurred prior to 2018. Despite the loss of territory, ISIL continued to pose a threat to security forces and civilians, including children, by carrying out deadly attacks in Ninawa, Kirkuk, Anbar, Diyala and Baghdad. Demonstrations, which resulted in violent incidents, including killing and arson, were verified.
