HRW urges Iraq to facilitate return of displaced persons to their homes

Human Rights Watch (HRW) urged the Iraqi authorities to take further measures to facilitate the return of displaced persons to their homes.

 

In a report, HRW said many displaced families throughout Iraq are banned from returning to their homes in governorates of Anbar, Nineveh, Salahuddin and Diyala.

 

Committees, which were formed in April, must be used to help facilitate the return of displaced persons to their homes in the provinces.

 

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.

 

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.
