ISIS terrorists seize Iraqi cities forcing at least 1 million people to flee their homes

Saudi-backed ISIS terrorists have seized key Iraqi city of Mosul and nearly all of the surrounding Nineveh Province [population: ~ 3.3 million,] while fighting continues in Anbar province, forcing at least 1 million people from both provinces to flee their homes.

Iraq’s Foreign Minister has called on his country’s leaders to face “the serious, mortal threat.” Adding that “there has to be a quick response to what has happened.”

The terrorist have also attacked Tikrit and are now in control of some parts of the city, as well as the town of Baiji, known for its oil refinery, according to reports quoting Iraqi security sources.

“The Baiji refinery can process 300,000 barrels per day and supplies oil products to most of Iraq’s provinces and is a major provider of power to Baghdad,” Reuters reported.

The towns of Hawijah, Zab, Riyadh, Abbasi and Rashad in south and west of the city of Kikruk, about 250 km north of Baghdad, reported Xinhua.

Anbar Province

The UN refugee agency on Friday, June 6 said that ongoing violence in central Iraq’s Anbar province has displaced almost half-a-million civilians since January. “With a deteriorating security situation, it is also becoming harder for humanitarian actors to reach those in need,” said a UNHCR spokesman.

He told journalists in Geneva that the Iraqi government puts the number of displaced since January at 434,000 men, women and children. “However, the full scale of the displacement from this under-reported conflict is unknown, as the Iraqi authorities have had to suspend registration over the past month because of insecurity,” he said, adding: “UNHCR believes the current figure is now close to 480,000.”

A further displacement last month occurred when the ISIL terrorists deliberately breached a dam in Anbar’s Abu Ghraib district, flooding the entire area and forcing some 72,000 people to flee their homes.

ISIS terrorists seize Iraq city of Mosul, free thousands of prisoners

UPDATE: The speaker of parliament told reporters late Tuesday that “terrorists” controlled the entire of Nineveh province [Population: ~ 3.3 million.] More than 250,000 people have reportedly fled Nineveh to Kurdish-controlled regions in northern Iraq.

ISIS terrorists have seized key Iraqi city of Mosul [Population: ~ 1.8 million,] capital of Nineveh Province, driving back government forces, according to reports quoting senior officials.

“The city of Mosul is outside the control of the state and at the mercy of the militants,” a senior Iraqi official told reporters.

Mosul is the second city to be seized by the Saudi-backed terrorist group known as the “Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL or ISIS).  In January terrorists seized the city of Fallujah, and parts of Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, forcing more than 70,000 people to flee their homes.

The much larger city of Mosul and surrounding Ninevah province are a major export route for Iraqi oil and a gateway to Syria, experts say.

The Iraqi Prime Minister has called on parliament to declare a state of emergency in response to the escalation, reports said.

ISIS have freed more than 2,500 inmates from a “counter terrorism prison,” according to numerous reports posted on the Internet by locals.

 Bloodbath Continues

Meantime, ISIS and its allies stepped up their terrorist attacks, killing or wounding dozens of people in the central town of Baquba in a double bomb attack, which targeted a funeral procession.

The terrorist attacks in western and northern Iraq have left scores of people dead or wounded since early June.

At least 1,027 civilians were killed in Iraq during the month of May, with the 2014 toll now standing at 5,595 civilians killed and thousands of others wounded.

Some 8,868 Iraqis, including 7,818 civilians and civilian police personnel, were killed in 2013, according to the United Nation’s Assistance (!) Mission in Iraq (UNAMI). [Iraq Body Count puts the number of civilians killed in violent acts at 9,475 for 2013.]

S. Arabia Nets Climate Change Q3 Dividends

Saudi Flood Death Toll Tops 88

Saudi Arabia collects at least 88 dead in oil induced climate change Q3 profits

At least 88 people have died in the heaviest flooding to hit Saudi Arabia in in living memory.

As Muslim pilgrims were casting stones at three concrete walls representing the devil on the third day of the annual hajj, torrential rains inundated  the port city of Jeddah, where 80 mm of rain fell in just a few hours, forcing the closure of the main highway to Mecca, and stranding thousands of pilgrims on their way to the Muslims’ holy city.

[The pilgrims efforts might have been more meaningful had they cast their stones at a mock-up of an oil rig, a giant oil drum and effigy of an oil supertanker.]

Most of the deaths reportedly occurred in the shantytowns around Jeddah and along the main highway to Mecca, an area populated by poor immigrants who provide cheap labor and domestic help to the wealthy Saudis.

Most of the victims died from drowning,  and a few others killed by mudslide,  collapsing houses, falling bridges and in car collisions. About 1,000 others were rescued  after being stranded in the floodwaters, the authorities said.
