assessments ongoing

WASH assistance
 Situation in Kirkuk remains tense. Aid agencies

Situation Overview
No new displacement has been reported in Anbar Governorate after fighters belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq
and the Levant (ISIL) seized large parts of the western town of al-Baghdadi on 12 February, threatening an
airbase where US soldiers are training Iraqi troops, about 85 km northwest of Ramadi. ISIL attacked al-Baghdadi
from two directions before advancing on the town. Until its fall, al-Baghdadi was one of the few towns in western
Anbar still held by the Iraqi army.
Families are reportedly too afraid to flee until clashes calm down before moving to another location, the
International Organization for Migration (IOM) reported, which continues to monitor the situation. According to the
latest IOM Displacement Tracking Matrix, there are currently 373,302 people displaced within Anbar Governorate
(as of 29 January 2015). For months, ISIL had surrounded the town’s parameter preventing much needed
humanitarian assistance of reaching residents, local aid workers confirm. ISIL is reportedly preventing residents
from leaving the city.
The World Food Programme (WFP) has started food distribution through partners in Zummar and Al-Quosh
(Ninewa Governorate). There remains an information gap on returnee population and associated protection
concerns. Partners from the food security cluster are undertaking assessments in newly accessible areas,
including around 15-17 villages in Ninewa Governorate. A handful of partners have been already begun working
in four areas of Ninewa. OCHA is supporting agencies by negotiating and advocating for easy access to the
recovered areas through authorities from Ninewa.
An NGO Consortium has started the Camp Management Project, which will cover 11 out of 14 open camps in
Dahuk. Support will be provided in three areas of camp management – protection, community participation and
information management.

About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.
