Nineveh provincial council called Tuesday on all internally displaced persons (IDPs) to return to their homes after their districts had been completely recaptured from ISIS terrorists and cleared of mines.
In a statement, the head of the council Bashar al-Kiki said all IDPs have to return to their original homes or places of habitual residence in Mosul’s right and left banks especially that there are no justifications to continue living in al-Khazar and al-Narkzliya displacement camps in eastern and northern Mosul respectively.
All the retaken districts in Mosul enjoy stability and security, he noted, adding that most of the basic services there have been completed.
The security forces, controlling Mosul’s districts, have called on IDPs to return to their homes. They also said employees can get back to their old jobs and students can return to their schools, he further stated.
There are no obstacles that hinder the return of IDPs after all services have become available in all villages and alleys in Nineveh governorate in general and in Mosul city in particular, he added.
In July, the Iraqi forces recaptured Mosul after a nine-month military campaign.
