Life after ISIS in the City of Makhmour
Iraq , Makhmur

September, 7, 2014
Makhmour, Iraq

Despite the Kurdish Peshmerga reclaiming control over Makhmour, the city in the Kurdish controlled part of Iraq, is still reeling from the aftermath of ISIS' occupation. Over 60% of residents have fled to Erbil while those who cannot afford to do so have returned to find their houses pillaged and, in some cases, destroyed. Many are now sleeping outside on the sidewalk or on top of roofs to guard their homes from robbers. If you roam around the city, you will find empty streets and closed shops while the Kurdish flag flies on governmental buildings. There are also reports of some Arab families running away to join ISIS, but for the families that stayed or have returned, it will take some time to piece their lives back together.

Transcription:

SOUNDBITE 1: Ibrahim Sheikh Alla, Director of the District Officer (man, English)

SOUNDBITE 2: Ali Hasam, citizen (man, Kurdish): “We demand all citizens to return to the areas under the control of the Kurdish forces, to protect the homes from the robbing that is happening. People are afraid because they know that ISIS is very close to Makhmour now and because Arab families in the area, such as the citizens of Baqert, are supportive of ISIS.”

“We have extreme security measurements for protection at the moment, and the situation of the market is bad.”

SOUNDBITE 3: Mohamad Sultan, taxi driver (man, Kurdish)
“Many people are afraid now, they are sleeping outside their homes on the look out for any ISIS attack. You can no longer hear anybody speaking Arabic around the area now. ISIS took over my house for four days, they used my clothes, ate my food, and broke into my vault and stole everything, including my passport and my keys.”

Mass Vaccination of Iraqi Refugee Chi...

September 4, 2014
Ankawa, Erbil, Iraq

Volunteer aid workers in Ankawa, Erbil, in association with the St Shmouni Church, have set up a mobile vaccination clinic for Christian refugees from the Nineveh province. The campaign aims to vaccinate children, aged between 5 months and 15 years old, against polio and measles. Originally the program began on September 3rd and was supposed to only last for a few days, but due to the high demand it has been extended.

Transcription:

SOUNDBITE 1: Saad Youssef Karromeh, doctor and manager of healthcare sector (man, Arabic):
(03:48)“Sponsored by the health center of Erbil and the supervision of the general health directorate, a campaign was launched to vaccinate refugee children against polio and measles. We provide the measles vaccine for children between the ages of 9 months and 15 years old, and concerning Polio, for children between the ages of 5 and 15 years old. Two weeks ago we launched a campaign for vaccinating children between the ages of 1 day and 5 years old against polio, and now we are continuing to cover the older age in the same time of the measles campaign.”

“We formed 7 groups to vaccinate children, our goal was to cover approximately 3,000 children. However, we exceeded that number in the past two days and there are now estimated to be 5,000 children vaccinated against polio and measles.”

“The reason for the increase in the number of vaccinated children is the fact that many people were informed about this campaign and refugees who live in the houses that were not counted as a part of our campaign, came to the center and we had to vaccinate their children.”

“As I previously mentioned, our campaign is sponsored by the health directorate of Erbil but we received support from the UNICEF and the WHO.”

“I am doctor Saad Youssef Karromeh, Supervisor in the campaign and manager of the initial health care sector in al-Hamdaniyah.” (5:20)

SOUNDBITE 2: Miss Khaladh, Christian refugee (woman, English): (05:41) - (07:05)

SOUNDBITE 3: Behnan Benoka, Syriac Christian priest (male, Arabic):
(07:06) “We are here in Mart Shmouni center for refugee rescue in Ankawa, Erbil. This place was established after the day of 06/08, after people fled from Nineveh. It was necessary to launch this project because diseases were spreading due to the high temperature, such as diarrhea, and throat infections, especially with children because of the long distances they had to cross, and the wait they had at the border of Kurdistan, after the attack of ISIS.”

“The medical staff that we have here consists of volunteers only, and includes doctors, doctors’ assistants, pharmacists, first aid experts, and a group for organization. All of them are volunteers.”

“Most of the doctors used to work originally in al-Hamdaniyah hospital. They are from Bartella, Karamles, Karaqosh, Mosul and many other areas. Today they find themselves among refugees so they voluntarily try to help as much as possible and provide services for those who need medical care, especially children, infants, and the elderly. We have approximately 50 volunteers.”

“Concerning the support, we do not have a specific institution that funds us. Everything you find here, and the medications are donations from people who try to help save patients as much as they can. They send small amounts of money to support as much as possible. We spend this money on medication, even though many pharmacies and shops have given us some medication for free, and decreased the price of other medication, in addition to donations that came from outside of Iraq. But concerning financial support, we do not have any institution that is funding us, other than individuals.”

“The money that we get from individuals is also spent on surgeries for the people in need, and on medications that are specially prescribed and unavailable here at the center”. (10:50)

(11:00)”We did not have many cases of death, here among children. The deaths were mostly among the elderly. However, that does not mean that people here are healthy, they are suffering from many diseases that can be very dangerous sometimes, such as scabies, skin sores, and sun burns, because all of them, even newly born children, sleep under basic tents.”

“My name is Behnan Benoka, a priest of the Syriac Catholic from the area of Bartella. I have a doctorate in philosophy”. (11:50)

Palestinians in Iraq Displaced Repeat...
Erbil
By Jawdat Ahmed
28 Aug 2014

Palestinians, who fled their home country in 1948 and settled in Iraq, have been displaced again in their adopted country. The families left Palestine after the creation of the state of Israel and set up residency in Mosul. They were persecuted under the regime of Saddam Hussein and denied rights of ownership given to regular Iraqi citizens. Despite this they stayed in Mosul for years until ISIS fighters took over the city and encouraged them to fight with them under the pretense of giving the Palestinians a state (Islamic State).

After they refused, the Palestinians fled Mosul to the Khazer refugee camp in the Kalak region, 50km east of Erbil, on the Iraqi-Syrian border, along with other refugees from northern Iraq. However ISIS forces kept advancing, taking over more towns in the region, which lead to the Kurdish Peshmerga evacuating the refugees from the area. They moved the Palestinians to the Baharka camp near Erbil, where they are sheltering for now.

Ibrahim, Palestinian father (man, Arabic):

“At first let me tell you that we are Palestinians, and we have been suffering continuously from 1948 until now. We have been persecuted and treated unjustly since then. Even during the rule of Saddam Hussein, Palestinians used to suffer as well. We weren't allowed to have Iraqi nationality, we couldn't own a house, and we couldn't own anything under our names. Even when Hussein was overthrown and the new regime took control we still suffered. To Arabs in general, Palestinians are terrorists. Anywhere we go, we are always treated in a negative way, once we show our IDs that say that we are Palestinian, the way they treat us changes.

The day the fighters came into Mosul, you can call them whatever you want “ISIS” or “IS” or anything, they already had information that we are Palestinian. They came to us asking us to fight with them, under the pretext that we are oppressed, and that they will help us have our own state. Of course we couldn't allow our children to join the fighting, or else they will be considered terrorists and will probably end up dead, but we had no other choice, no one can argue with them. If we had we would be treated as apostates. They told us we have two days to make our children join the fighting. Even if they can't fight, they will train them and give them salaries. We, the decision makers in the community, held a meeting and decided to flee the area the next day to the Khazer camp.

Our situation is not safe, if the next day Mosul is freed [from ISIS], the government will tell us to go back, but when we are in Mosul, our lives are in danger. Since we are Palestinian, the Iraqi government will treat us as terrorists. If we go to Mosul today, ISIS will punish us because we didn't fight on their side. Either way, our situation in Iraq is dangerous, we thank God we're in Kurdistan now, but our future is unknown. We demand the UNHCR to settle us in another country, because our future here is unstable.”

Ali, Palestinian father (man, Arabic):

“We ask the UN and the Human rights associations to look after us, and take us out of the country. We suffered a lot since we came here. Ever since I was born in this country, I didn't know peace or stability; we have no rights at all. We demand the UN to take us out of Iraq.

We came to this refugee camp without a thing, not even a dollar. We decided to look for a job in order to survive. We are living all together, 8 families supporting and helping each other.

The state of Palestine has provided nothing for us since 1948. We always wished the Palestinian president and the government would look out for us. The only thing we got from any Palestinian official was the official form to get into Erbil easily and that was given by the Palestinian ambassador, here in Iraq.”
