Overview

Hawiga district is one of the last areas of Iraq still occupied by the armed group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The offensive by Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) to retake the city is due to begin imminently. With the beginning of the operation, the United Nations (UN) estimates that 65,000 civilians, still residing in ISIL-held territory, will be affected.

The fighting is likely to trigger mass displacement, with probable continued influx of civilians towards areas controlled by Iraqi and Kurdish forces.
