Description : Due to the fighting in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, hundreds of thousands have fled their homes and sought refugee with friends and family in the surrounding villages.
Bartellah city is 20 kilometres north east of Mosul and an area inhabited mostly by Christian, Shabak, and Turkmen minorities. Hazim Mal-Allah is the mukhtar (village chief), of Bajbithah ,12 kilometres from Mosul. The number of families in his village has swelled by 50% since the fighting to 450. The fighting has resulted in a shortage of water and electricity during Ramadan which with the near 50 degrees is compounding the difficulties people are facing. In some of the villages in Al-Hamadaniyah District in Ninawa, the population nearly doubled within a few days with people escaping the fighting. This has put pressure on basic services, some of which were already stretched. With the help of the mukhtars from these villages hosting large numbers of displaced people , the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has identified those in need and so far provided food and other relief items to 760 Mosul displaced families in Bartellah and some surrounding villages.
