Displacement Camps of Mosul Too Crowded to Accommodate Refugees

As war continues to rage in Mosul, displaced families are having an even harder time finding shelter.

Fighting in Mosul is only getting more intense as the Iraqi army, backed by the United States, tries to drive ISIS out of the key city.

The current camps on the Western side of the side are overrun with people and the camps being hastily built can’t accommodate the numbers. Often, the buses they’ve transported to the camps on are turned away and people have to try to hire taxis to leave the area.

According to Reuters, the number of people displaced from Mosul has become 355,000.

Those who haven’t been pushed to camps have been forced to cram into the homes of relatives or neighbors, with reports of 15 people in one home.
