  • Operation Desert Fox (1998), a four-day bombing campaign during the Iraq disarmament crisis
  • Iraq War (March 2003 to December 2011), a two-phase conflict comprising an initial invasion of Iraq led by US and UK forces and a longer, seven-year phase of occupation and fighting with insurgents.
  • Iraqi insurgency (2011–13), the surge in sectarian violence that occurred immediately following the end of the 2003 to 2011 Iraq War
  • Iraq War (2014–present), an ongoing conflict that began when the initial two long year insurgency escalated in January 2014
