Earth is fighting to stay alive – mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin in 2016

One in ten Iraqis internally displaced between January 2014 and July 2015 —IOM

At least 3,171,606 Iraqis (528,601 families) have been internally displaced between January 2014 and July 30, 2015, according to the Swiss-based International Organization for Migration (IOM).

The above estimate, obtained through IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), represents about 10 percent of Iraqi population of 32 million [July 2014 estimate.]

About 87 per cent of IDPs are originally from three governorates (provinces), said the report:

  • Anbar (40 percent)
  • Ninewa (33 percent)
  • Salah al-Din (14 percent)

In the first half of 2015, at least 6,784 Iraqis were killed and 11,789 others wounded in acts of terrorism and violence perpetrated by the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) terrorists (locally known as daesh), the thugs, assassins and murder mechanics leftovers from the genocidal regime of Saddam-Hussein.
