IRAQI KURDISTAN NEWS ACTION: United
Nations declares highest level of emergency regarding crisis in Iraqi-Kurdistan

 Please circulate widely on Facebook,  E-mail,
Twitter, and other social networks. 

The United Nations has declared its highest level of emergency regarding the
humanitarian crisis in Iraqi-Kurdistan.  

The city of Dohuk, north of Mosul, after the arrival of over 150,000 refugees
and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) has surpassed its ability to feed and shelter
all the people who are in grave need.  We hope the U.N.’s declaration will
increase the money and resources available to provide for the needs of such
people as the Yazdis and other displaced people.  

The photos below were taken today by the team at the Arbat
Refugee Camp.  One displays the agencies that are working within the
camp.  The other, if you look closely at the receding utility poles, shows
the scale of the camp.
