Iraqi gov't, backed by IMIS, force dozens of IDPs to return to Anbar
The Iraqi government, backed by the Iranian militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS), has forced dozens of internally displaced persons (IDPs) to return to their homes in Anbar governorate despite the deterioration of security situation in it, a local source said on Sunday.

He added that the IDPs who live at displacement camps in Baghdad have officially been informed to return to their homes in the towns, destroyed due to war against ISIS, of Anah, Rawa, and al-Qa'im in western Anbar.

The government has defined 25 days for IDPs to leave Baghdad.

One of the IDPs confirmed that the government launched campaigns of forced return to dozens of IDPs, regardless the rotting of services in these areas. 

Earlier, more than 140 displaced families have returned to their homes in Rawa, al-Qa'im, and Anah towns, Mazen Khaled, an advisor to the governor, said.

Khaled confirmed that these towns are secure to receive the IDPs.

As a result of the war against ISIS terrorists in Iraq, the number of displaced people risen dramatically. 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 recapture operations.

IMIS is working to hasten Iran plots to carry out demographic changes in the Sunni areas, exploiting the deteriorating security situation in the Iraqi cities where battles against ISIS are going on.
