According to the Telegraph newspaper that there are refugees from Fallujah near the Bzeibiz bridge connecting Anbar province with Baghdad .Having fled the hunger, deprivation and violence of ISIL, they are now on the move again – this time in a bid to escape a rapidly escalating humanitarian crisis unfolding in the displacement camps around the city.
The situation has been grim for Fallujah’s residents since the battle to wrest control of the city from ISIL began last month.
People are going to die because they are exposed to the elements and the searing heat,” says Karl Schembri, spokesperson for the Norwegian Refugee Council, one of the few organizations currently providing aid to Fallujah’s displaced.
The newspaper added that the Iraqi government runs the camps, but beyond the guards at the entrance, there is little sign of a government presence. Instead, trucks laden with food occasionally pull up to dispense food and water, donated by private individuals appalled by the suffering.
