KRG preparing for possible 1 million expected to flee Mosul

By Rudaw 26/7/2016
-

The Mosul offensive has already started.  A first step is a refugee camp being built in Baashiqah Mount, 30km northeast of Mosul.

 

The United Nations estimates one million people will flee Mosul during the operation. Duhok Province has a 450km-long border with Mosul.

 

Five locations have been chosen for refugee camps: Jambur, Hatarah, Tal Mus, Zilkan and Hassan Sham. Most of the camps are in recently recaptured areas.

 

The Mayor of Zilkan area says that since the Mosul operation is imminent, the camps must be ready within one month.

 

Zilkan camp is just 30 km away from Mosul. The camp can accommodate about 10,000 refugees.

Good.After the offensive is over and that 1 million want to come back in the city,take only the Kurds,DO NOT LET the other minorities in the city again.

Kurdistan better be careful and not be politically correct. These lunatic Sunni Arabs welcomed Isis with open arms. Half of them are probably in Isis and the others sympathize with Isis.
