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.
