    UN to set up new camp for displaced persons in Mosul


    The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) opened a new camp for displaced people on Friday located 60 km west of Mosul.

    This is the second camp that the UNHCR opens in Iraq, and it houses about 9,000 people, UNHCR spokesman Andrei Maheshic told reporters.

    He also added that the camp is opened to deal with emergencies resulting from the ongoing military operations in the war-shattered city.

    Maheshic also stressed that UNHCR called on parties to the conflict not to impede attempts of civilians desiring to leave areas of conflict in Mosul.

    He also revealed that numbers of displaced persons in the city are still on the rise.

    The United Nations, in cooperation with its humanitarian relief partners, is seeking to expand the camps in Sulaymaniyah with a capacity of 30,000 people, the UN official said.
