From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia(Redirected from List of ongoing conflicts)For recent conflicts that are no longer significantly ongoing, see List of wars 2003–current.
The following is a list of ongoing political conflicts that are taking place around the world and which continue to result in violent deaths. This list is for the sole purpose of identifying present-day conflicts and the death toll associated with each conflict. Fatality figures include both civilian and military deaths. Political conflicts which no longer produce violent deaths are not listed here, but can be found in the historical list of wars and the list of wars extended by diplomatic irregularity.
 1000+ deaths per year
Conflicts in the following list are currently causing at least 1000 violent deaths per year, a categorization used by the Uppsala Conflict Data Program and recognised by the United Nations. The UN also use the term "low intensity conflict", which can overlap with the 1000 violent deaths per year categorization.
