MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Over 90,000 people were displaced from Iraq's northern governorates from June 16 to September 5 in addition to more than 3.3 displacements across the country since January 2014, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said Tuesday.
"More than 90,100 Iraqis have been recently displaced from Salah al-Din (Baiji and Al-Shirqat districts) and Ninewa (Al-Qayara sub-district) between 16 June and 5 September 2016… These displacements are in addition to the more than 3.3 million Iraqis already displaced across the country since January 2014," IOM said in a press release.
"The teams conduct infrastructure maintenance, training for IDPs and awareness campaigns in order to strengthen community participation. CCCM [IOM Shelter and Camp Coordination and Camp Management] mobile teams are operating in Baghdad, Salah al-Din, Erbil and Anbar governorates," the organization added.
The Iraqi government is carrying out anti-Daesh operations in the country's north. Daesh, a jihadist group outlawed in many countries, including Russia, overran large parts of Syria and Iraq in 2014 amid the ongoing civil war in Syria.
