Mosul, Iraq, 27 April 2017 - Hamam Al Alil Field Hospital, the second in a chain of trauma field hospitals, opened its doors to treat casualties from West Mosul as part of a joint initiative by the World Health Organization (WHO) with the Federal Ministry of Health, Ninewa Department of Health, and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
IRBIL, April 26 (KUNA) -- The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has distributed clothes funded by Kuwait to over 5,000 displaced Iraqi families south of Mosul.
IOM media representative Sara Ali told KUNA on Wednesday that the distribution came within the Kuwaiti grant.
Families from Mosul are in need for the aid, where they left all of their belongings in their homes, she said. She noted that the IOM has expanded the camps at Qyara, supported by Kuwait, by adding over 2,000 extra tents.
Since 17 October 2016, Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) have been engaged in an operation to recapture the city of Mosul from Armed Groups (AGs). The entire Eastern bank of Mosul has been under ISF control since January 2017, after which Iraqi forces have been engaged in ongoing military operations to retake the rest of the city.
The hospital opened by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Qayyarah, Iraq, last December is around 35 miles (60 km) south of Mosul. Distant enough not to hear the sounds of airstrikes and rocket fire, but sufficiently close for the wounded to be brought in when medical facilities nearer the front line are no longer able to cope.
On February 18, the Iraqi army launched an offensive with the support of the U.S.-led coalition to retake west Mosul, the part of the city still under control of the so-called Islamic State.
The Australian Government will provide an additional $110 million over three years in humanitarian and stabilisation assistance for Iraq. This funding will help combat the Islamist terrorist group ISIS.
ISIS has now lost over 60% of the territory it once held in Iraq. More than two million people were liberated from its grasp in 2016. But there is more to be done.
people are currently displaced as of 24 April
family plots are immediately available to shelter displaced people in 9 priority sites and 10 other sites as of 24 April
water is trucked every day to eastern Mosul by humanitarian partners
people referred from frontline areas to hospitals to receive treatment for trauma injuries as of 23 April
Displacement from west Mosul continues to surge, reaching 382,000 displaced as of 25 April.
Over half of destroyed or heavily damaged sites in Mosul are residential.
Mandatory return orders halted in Anbar.
Military operations to retake western Anbar from ISIL could displace up to 60,000 people.
Over half of IHPF partners are now national NGOs
People fleeing Mosul hostilities exceed 500,000
HIGHLIGHTS: The military offensive to retake west Mosul continues with 330,012 people currently displaced (433,962 cumulatively). Despite ongoing displacement from west Mosul, returns and relocations to east Mosul and surrounding areas continue at an increasing rate. UNHCR and partners continue to provide protection and assistance to displaced families, while monitoring the circumstances of return.
Bridge crossings at Qayyarah and Nimrud were closed for much of the week due to flooding along the Tigris River, disrupting humanitarian operations.
This week, some aid services were also impacted by the temporary suspension of UN missions to western Mosul for four days due to security threats. This temporary suspension was lifted on 22 April.
24 April 2017, Erbil, Iraq – The demand for emergency referral services in west Mosul continues daily. More than 1900 trauma cases from west Mosul have received medical care in hospitals in Ninewa and neighbouring governorates. As military operations reach the densely populated parts of Mosul city, health partners anticipate a significant increase in the number of war-related casualties. Ensuring timely referrals and transport from the frontlines to trauma stabilization points and field hospitals is critical to sparing civilian lives.
334,518 Iraqis currently internally displaced from Mosul and surrounding areas since military operations to retake the city began on 17 October 2016
45,509 core relief item (CRI) kits distributed to families in camps, assisting some 273,000 IDPs from Mosul and surrounding areas
9,229 family plots currently occupied out of 17,403 family plots (for some 104,000 people) in UNHCR built camps ready to receive IDPs displaced from Mosul and surrounding areas
WHO has supported the Erbil, Duhok and Sulymania Directorates of Health with intravenous fluids sufficient for 100 000 people to support the response to the ongoing crisis in Mosul and other governorates.
Between 19 January and 25 February 2017, most observed damage has occurred in the left bank (western Mosul), where retaking operations have taken place. More specifically, two residential areas to south of right bank, which have been the main site of clashes between ISF and ISIL, have suffered heavy damage. Damaged buildings identified by satellite imagery only identifes severely damaged buildings.
For that reason, the amount of damaged buildings is likely higher than the amount indicated on this map.
Due to the latest disruptions, as of 25 March 2017, most of the both the right and the left bank areas have no electricity. While ISIL is retreating, it has booby-trapped many of the important stations with improvised explosive devices (IEDs), including the 400 KV station which supplies 20% of Mosul’s energy. Other substations are currently mostly out of operation because of a lack of required resources (oil, gas).
Executive Summary The need for stabilization activities has increased dramatically as new areas are liberated from ISIL, including much of Mosul, Iraq's second largest city. In Quarter 1 2017, UNDP's Funding Facility for Stabilization (FFS) developed and approved more than 200 projects, bringing the total number of stabilization projects to more than 500 in 22 locations.
FFS rapidly expanded activities in Ninewah after eastern Mosul was declared liberated in late January. Dozens of assessment missions were undertaken to the city, and over 90 projects are now underway.
