Samarra operations declared Thursday several displaced families have returned to their homes in the district of Balad of Salahuddin province.

In a statement, the command said security services oversaw the process of getting the displaced persons back to their homes in the areas of Sinjar, andOm Shaifa.

It added the security forces checked the records of the displaced persons to ensures there are no terrorists hiding amid them.

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.
