Yazidi Displaced Persons Return to their Home City from Dohuk Camps

Almost 800 Yazidis are returning to their hometown of Sinjar after being displaced to Dohuk camps, according to Mrs. Evan Faeq Jabro, the Minister of Migration and Displacement.

The Ministry of Migration announced that more than 785 Yazidis, who were displaced to the Esyan and Mam Rashan camps in Dohuk, can now rebuild their lives in their original homes in Sinjar. This effort is in line with the directive from Prime Minister Mr. Mohammed Shia’ Al-Sudani to close the displacement camps.

Mrs. Jabro explained that the transportation of families and their belongings was conducted in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM). She directed that “the returning families in Sinjar should be provided with financial grants, relief aid, durable goods, and all necessary assistance promptly.”.

Also, the Minister of Migration and Displacement in Iraq confirmed that the ministry is committed to facilitating the voluntary return of all displaced persons and aims to close the displacement file completely by July 30th.
