Iraq: DTM Telafar Crisis Displacement Overview (as of 14 September 2017)
On 20 August 2017 the military operations to retake Telafar and surrounding areas were launched.
The DTM has been monitoring preemptive displacement movements from these areas since spring, and with greater intensity since the second half of July 2017 after the conclusion of the military operations to retake the city of Mosul. Most displacement took place along a few main axes, through Badosh, Al Masaid and Muhalabiyah areas, in Mosul district. Most IDPs, gathered at mustering points, eventually reached Hammam Al Aliel screening site, from where they proceeded to camps and out-of-camp locations.
The DTM set up two integrated monitoring systems, a flow monitoring system at Hammam Al Aliel screening site and the usual Emergency Tracking, which tracks the IDP population at the location of displacement.
- On 9 July 2017 the Iraqi PM announced that the city of Mosul was fully retaken. This date is here considered as the end of Mosul military operations.
