West Anbar Crisis Displacement Overview | 31 October 2017
The DTM has been monitoring displacement movements from west Anbar areas, particularly the districts of Ana, Al- Ka’im and Ru’ua, since January 2017. Displacement has been taking place since then as a con-sequence of hostilities in the area, and mainly in anticipa-tion of the larger military operations announced to be launched several times throughout 2017.
Reportedly, most IDPs transit through Kilo 18 screening site and then proceed towards camps and out-of-camp locations. However, not all IDPs transit through Kilo 18 screening site as many reach their location of displace-ment through other routes. The DTM has consequently set up an integrated system composed of a flow monitoring system at Kilo 18 screening site and the regular DTM Emergency Tracking, which tracks IDPs at their location of displacement. These two systems are to be used in an integrated manner as the flow monitoring system at Kilo 18 screening site does not fully capture the displacement.
