Up to 423 displaced families will return on Monday to their homes in Jalawla town in Diyala governorate, Walhan Qadory, a member of the high commission for displacement, said on Saturday.
He added that the council had given the go-ahead for these families to return.
Qadory pointed out that this is the second time that the council agreed to let displaced families return after the security forces had been deployed to the town.
Amidst the ongoing fight against ISIS to recapture Iraqi cities from the terrorist group’s clutches, the number of displaced people is on the rise.
This increases the burden on the central government trying to handle the problem of displaced Iraqis who escaped the atrocities of ISIS since the launch of liberation operations.
What exacerbates displaced persons' dilemma is that Iraq’s financial resources have been drained as a result of the military operations conducted to retake ISIS-held districts.
