About 5,000 displaced persons back home in Mosul, Ministry

The Iraqi Ministry of Migration and Displacement has announced Tuesday the return of 4,878 displaced persons to their original homes in Mosul.

According to a statement issued by the Immigration Ministry on Tuesday, the displaced persons have not forced to return to their homes, indicating that no one can force them to leave their camps .

It also uncovered that about 250 displaced persons returned to  their homes in Nineveh from Akdeh refugee camp in Turkey .

The Nineveh Human Rights Organization in Mosul has sharply criticized the Iraqi government's inaction over the internally displaced persons (IDPs) file.

Many displaced people are still unable to return to their areas of origin as a result of the destruction of their homes during the war, the lack of basic infrastructure and the unstable security situation.

Most of the displaced persons live in camps scattered across the country Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi announced, in December, full liberation of Iraqi lands, declaring end of war against ISIS members.
