WEST MOSUL CITY DISPLACEMENT
On 19 February, Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) resumed military operations to retake western Mosul from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). There has been a significant increase in people displaced from western Mosul since ISF entered more densely populated neighbourhoods in the city’s south.
ASSISTANCE PROVIDED TO NEWLY DISPLACED PEOPLE
At the Hammam al Alil screening site, to support government assistance, humanitarian partners have distributed emergency response kits to all new arrivals, consisting of 12 kilograms of ready-to-eat food rations, a hygiene kit to last a family a week, 12 litres of bottled drinking water and a water container. Blankets are also distributed to all newly displaced families upon arrival at the screening site. Following security screening, newly-displaced people from western Mosul are relocated to camps and emergency sites.
