Saladin governorate council

Saladin governorate council accused al-Hashd Shiite militias (IMIS) over preventing displaced Iraqi people from returning to areas liberated from ISIS.

In statements on Wednesday, head of the Saladin governorate council Ahmed Al Karim said that the council's efforts to help displaced people to return to their homes are met with IMIS efforts to prevent them especially in the cities of Baiji, Yathrib and Sulaiman Bek.

The council has discussed the file of the displaced people with the prime minister, Karim said, pointing out that the premier did not show required seriousness.

Meanwhile, Karim said that he will raise the issue to the United Nations if the displaced people did not return to their homes by mid-February.
