Ich war erneut in der Autonomen Region Kurdistan im Irak unterwegs und habe dort Irakische Binnenvertriebene getroffen, die vor dem Krieg in Mosul und dem IS geflohen sind. Hier ein paar Eindrücke.
A few impressions from the situation of the refugees and internally displaced persons in Northern Iraq.

Al Wand camp in Diyala provence. Even though ISIS has been widely pushed back around here, many people still arrive in the camp daily, as ongoing conflicts between shia militias, Iraqi forces, Kurdish peshmerga and ISIS cells destabilize the region. © Andrea Backhaus
