Iraq's Ministry of Migration and Displacement received 376 displaced Iraqi people coming from al-Hawl refugee camp in Syria.

Ali Abbas, a ministry official, said that the displaced Iraqis are now staying in the Jadaa camp in Nineveh.

Abbas added that the ministry provided them with buses, in cooperation with the Ministry of Transport. The displaced people have also received food baskets and water from the ministry.

In August, Iraqi authorities said that 500 displaced families had returned home in the province of Nineveh. 

Later in the same month, The Baghdad Post received a copy of a statement from the Ministry of Defense stating the Iraqi forces supervised the return of 92 displaced families and provided them with buses for them to return to their homes in Qaim, Anbar province, along with their belongings. 

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in July that there are 100,000 displaced persons from Mosul who are still living in camps despite announcing the liberation of the city from terrorism a year ago.
