Iraqi Kurdistan News in brief – November 3, 2016

[size=13]Yazidis struggle to receive support and feel forgotten again[/size]
Duhok: Yazidis in Iraqi Kurdistan Region feel forgotten by humanitarian organizations and governments, as local and international focus has shifted to the growing number of displaced persons fleeing Mosul to escape the escalating offensive to liberate that besieged city from Islamic State IS. Over the last year and a half, contributions from major humanitarian organizations and the Mosul governorate have stopped, says Dr. Ahmed Elyas Hassan. The sentiment among the camp is that the major humanitarian organizations such as World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) have deserted Yazidi IDPs and completely refocused their efforts in preparation for those fleeing Mosul. “I don’t know why the big organizations like UNICEF, which is responsible for education, why did they stop their job here and go to Mosul?” Hassan said. rudaw.net | Ekurd.net
[size=13]New border crossing to be opened between Iraqi Kurdistan and Iran[/size]
Erbil: Iraq’s Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and Iran have reached a mutual understanding upon opening a new border crossing that connects Erbil and Western Azarbaijan provinces. “The agreement was reached after almost two years of negations between Erbil and Tehran,” said Karwan Karimkhan, head of the local administration of Sidakan subdistrict where the new border crossing is located. Karimkhan revealed that a joint committee has been formed to discuss the details of the approach, and the border crossing is expected to be opened in the near future. Sidakan region is located on the triangle of Iran-Iraq-Turkey borders reaching each other. basnews.com

[size=13]Refugee arrivals in Kurdistan exceed 40,000; greater numbers expected in coming days[/size]
Erbil: Kurdish and UN aid workers in Iraq’s Kurdistan Region say that they prepare to receive greater numbers of displaced families from Nineveh Plains as the battle for Mosul is likely to continue inside the city where close to a million people still reside. Representative of the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) in Erbil told Rudaw they plan to set up additional camps across the Kurdistan Region for the new arrivals. “We expect many more to come and we have indeed other plans for new camps,” said Hawre Abdulla at the UNHCR. “We have divided the region into several zones where each zone will be provided with a camp,” Abdulla added. rudaw.net
[size=13]Nearly 400 Yazidi and Turkmen captives in IS-held Tel Afar: MP[/size]
Baghdad: Islamic State (IS) militants are keeping nearly 400 women captives from the Kurdish Yazidi and Shi’ite Muslim communities in Tel Afar, said a member of the Iraqi parliament. MP Nahla Hababi, a representative of Iraqi Turkmens, told BasNews on Wednesday that the woman captives are subjected to a serious threat as the Iraqi forces are pushing deeper into IS-held areas. “Before launching an assault to liberate the areas, counter-terrorism forces and the Hashd al-Shaabi [pro-government Shi’ite militias] need to conduct a rescue operation and bring these captives to safety,” Hababi urged. basnews.com
[size=13]Coalition spokesman: IS has no answer for unified ISF and Peshmerga[/size]
Erbil: The U.S.-led Coalition against the Islamic State (IS) said on Wednesday “unprecedented cooperation” between Peshmerga, Iraqi forces and the Coalition is of immense importance as the operation to regain the insurgents’ stronghold of Mosul is ongoing. Peshmerga, Iraqi forces and the Coalition held a joint press conference on Tuesday at the Nineveh Operations Complex in Makhmour where they discussed an assault launched on October to liberate Mosul. The unity between Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) and Peshmerga has left IS no answer, said a spokesman from the Coalition Air Force, Colonel John Dorrian. nrttv.com
