Iraqi gov't vows to return IDPs to their homes ahead elections

Iraqi gov't vows to return IDPs to their homes ahead elections
Iraqi government aims, during the next phase, to return the displaced people to their homes, Abadi's office spokesman Saad al-Hadithi said on Thursday.

He added that the government is committed to conducting the general elections as scheduled. 

According to the statistics, about 2,500,000 IDPs wait to return to their homes as the government has promised.

Hadithi confirmed that the government will secure the peacefully return to the IDPs as well as providing the appropriate services for them.

He pointed out that Kuwait will hold a donors conference for these IDPs next February. 

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.
