Iraqi refugee crisis: 3 Million Iraqi Refugees

Published: June 23, 2015

Iraqi refugee crisis: 3 Million Iraqi Refugees, More than three million people have been displaced by conflict in ISIS seized last month.

More than 2.6 million of the total are from Anbar, Nineveh and Salaheddin – three provinces located west and north of Baghdad that have been the hardest hit by fighting between ISIS and pro-government forces.

IS launched a brutally effective offensive last June that overran the northern city of Mosul and then swept south towards the capital.

Prior to that, anti-government fighters seized all of the city of Fallujah and parts of Ramadi west of Baghdad, prompting tens of thousands of people to flee.
