Overview of Displaced In Iraq, May 2015


In June 2015 it was reported that over 3 million Iraqis had lost their homes. This tragedy began in January 2014 when open fighting broke out in Anbar after Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki decided to shut down the protest site in Ramadi. It then accelerated after the fall of Mosul and Tikrit in June 2014, and then had several more surges as the Islamic State seized more territory in Anbar in late 2014 to the spring of 2014. Here is an overview of the displaced in Iraq in May 2015 based upon data published by the International Organization of Migration (IOM). IOM has not released reports for all of Iraq’s governorates, but for 14 out of 18 of them.
