Iraq - After the country's war against ISIS ended, displaced families were told that it was time to go home, pushing thousands of families into peril. Many internally displaced people said that they can not return home due to lack of infrastructure, and accusations of collaborations with ISIS.
The Norwegian Refugee Council on Internal Displacement has issued its annual report on internal displacement. The report shows that although violence contributed highly to displacement, natural disasters are the primary reasons for displacement.
Those who were living in IDP camps in Anbar Province are returning to their homes following an end to major security operations against ISIS. However, there are concerns over the safety of many displaced people returning home, as well as the pace of resettlement.
