There were seven countries with active armed conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) in 2019 (the same as in 2018): Egypt (high-intensity, subnational armed conflict), Iraq (internationalized civil war), Israel (low-intensity, extrastate armed conflict), Libya (internationalized civil war), Syria (major internationalized civil war), Turkey (low-intensity, extrastate and subnational armed conflict) and Yemen (major internationalized civil war).1 All the armed conflicts had fewer fatalities than in 2018, except for Libya (which increased from nearly 12 000 fatalities in 2018 to nearly 21 000 in 2019).2 Developments in each of the armed conflicts and any related peace processes are covered in subsequent sections: Iraq, Syria and Turkey (section II); the Israeli–Palestinian conflict (section III); Egypt and Libya (section IV); and Yemen (section V).
