    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A total of 867 Iraqis were killed and 1,459 nationals were injured as a result of multiple terrorist attacks and armed conflict in the country in May, the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) said Wednesday.

    "Iraqi civilians going about their daily life have been the target of terrorist suicide bombers and car bombs. Armed clashes have spared no one. But the will of the Iraqi people, despite all the carnage, remains unshaken and this gives hope for the future," Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq Jan Kubis was quoted as saying in a UNAMI statement.

    According to the mission's latest data, the province of Baghdad was the primary target of extremists' attacks with 267 killed and 740 injured.

    Iraq, along with neighboring Syria, has been suffering from the advance of the Daesh terrorist group, which is outlawed in Russia and the Untied States as well as in many other countries.
