The United Nations says that more than 1,200 Iraqis were killed in November by acts of terrorism and violence.

According to the U.N. Assistance Mission for Iraq, 1,232 Iraqis were killed in November and 2,434 were wounded, a slight decrease from last month's figures.

The U.N. obtained casualty figures for Iraq's western Anbar province from the Health Directorate in Anbar. The figures estimate that at least 402 people were killed in the province — the majority of them in Ramadi, where the Islamic State militant group continues to clash with Iraqi security forces. The U.N. independently verified that at least 332 people were killed in Baghdad province.

The U.N. said last month that at least 1,273 Iraqis were killed in violence in October.
