NGOs blast Iraqi decision to close IDP camps amid pandemic

Published on November 16, 2020 by

Several camps housing people who fled the war against ISIL (ISIS) have been closed down in Iraq.
Many families who were in the camps had a family member who joined ISIL, making them reluctant to return to their communities, who they are afraid will reject them.
Aid groups and other non-governmental organisations say the closures have been rushed and could leave tens of thousands of people homeless during a pandemic and at the onset of winter.
