The Kurdistan Health Ministry has announced that over three thousand women were killed in cases of domestic violence in the last five years.

In a press conference held on Tuesday in Kurdistan Region Capital Erbil, the Health Ministry released statistics on the deaths.

3,049 women were killed throughout the Kurdistan Region as a result of domestic violence. Causes listed include immolation, suffocation, murder and car accidents.

The head of the Women’s Rights Committee in the Kurdistan Region Parliament said that despite the high number of women victims in Kurdistan region the rate of violence against women in the region has decreased compare to five years ago.

“Women are victims of violence all around the world. What is strange is that the overall number of cases has decreased in the last 5 years, but cases of immolation have increased in Duhok Province”, said Evar Ibrahim, the head of the Women’s Rights Committee in Kurdistan Parliament.
