On 21 September 2017, Iraqi forces resumed military operations against ISIS in the Hawija district of Kirkuk governorate and launched a related offensive in the Shirqat district of Salah al-Din.
The DTM Emergency Tracking has been monitoring displacement movements from the Hawija district since earlier military operations intensified in August 2016 (and then stalled in October 2016. To closely track the latest wave of displacement from this crisis, DTM has set up a flow monitoring system at screening sites in addition to the usual Emergency Tracking, which records the IDP population at the location of displacement.
