Bookmark and Share

(AINA) -- The Hammurabi Human Rights Organization has issued its latest report, dated June 30, 2014, on the situation in North Iraq.


The disappearance of two nuns, Sister Utoor and Sister Miskintah, who managed the Miskintah Orphanage in Mosul, has been confirmed (AINA 2014-06-30).

Families continue to leave Mosul; most of the displaced are heading north to the Nineveh Plain and to the Dohuk Province.

The growing scarcity of basic supplies and medicine, as well as severe shortage of electricity and water, is becoming a threat to the health and safety of the population.

The status of thousands of civil servants who were removed from the jobs by ISIS remains unclear. These employees were to receive their salary for the month of June last week, but they have not been paid.

Conditions in the Nineveh Plain

Assyrian Families have begun returning to Baghdede (Qaraqosh) with caution as security in the area is still uncertain.

There continues to be a severe shortage of water and electricity. The use of portable generators is declining as fuel supplies diminish.

There has been a substantial increase in unemployment because of the suspension of commerce in the districts of the Nineveh Plain, as caused by the ISIS invasion.

Numerous villages, towns and districts of the Nineveh Plain continue to receive families displaced from the center of Mosul, as well as from the district of Tal Afar.
