displaced civilians
Thousands of Iraqi civilians continue to flee Mosul city as the city witnesses intensive fighting between Iraqi forces and ISIS terrorist group.

The clashes prompted civilians to flee the city towards safer government-held areas in south of Mosul city.

Iraqi Ministry of Displacement and Migration reported 200,000 civilians who were forced to leave their homes since Iraqi forces launched the military operation to the western bank of the city.  

Evacuation of civilians is very complicated and have many obstacles, relief officials said.

The Ministry of Displacement and Migration opened a new camp in south of Mosul in order to shelter up to 36,000 displaced people, official sources said.

Qayyarah Jad’ah Camp includes 6,000 tents in south of Mosul in order to shelter the increasing numbers of displaced people, they added.

According to press sources, civilians are living in dire conditions in these camps because of the siege imposed months ago and the severe lack of food and water.
