Human Appeal, who have the largest aid operations of all British NGOs working in Mosul, says that if the international community does not comprehensively support the city’s recovery, following the campaign to retake Mosul from ISIS which began a year ago today, then it is likely that severe instability and conflict could resurface in Iraq’s beleaguered second city in the coming years.
Remarks on Iraq made at the noon briefing by Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesman for the Secretary‑General:
“UNHCR and its partners have been helping families who, fearing large‑scale military clashes, have fled Kirkuk and other disputed areas pre‑emptively in recent days.
UNHCR and its partners have been providing food, water and shelter to these families.
The agency believes that the majority of these families will return to their homes in the coming days, but also says that there will be groups who are likely to remain uprooted.”
