6,753. 7/15/2006

“In July 2006, the number of roadside bombs directed at U.S. forces in Iraq rose to the highest monthly total of the war, galvanizing evidence that the anti-American insurgency has only strengthened since the killing of [al Qaeda in Iraq leader] Abu Musab al-Zarkawi. In July, 2,625 explosive devices were found, compared to 1,454 in January.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
