9,000 Displaced Every Week in Iraq

An estimated 9,000 people in Iraq are displaced every week, according to VOA News; about 190,000 have been displaced since late February. Most of the displaced suffer from inadequate food, water, shelter, and other necessitates, and the International Organization for Migration says that winter is causing increased concern, and funding is running low.

According to the UN refugee agency, the situation for Palestinian refugees is especially bad, as they are more frequently the target of violence and have trouble getting identification.
