The security forces in Kurdistan Region have gained good experience and skills in fighting terrorism and extreme violence during the last 26 years, but we need to pay more attention to the provision of technology and technical skills of these forces so that they be capable of not only to confront terrorism militarily but also how to prevent the spread of terrorism and violent ideology.
The German delegation visited the Kurdistan Region to see the current situation so that they tailor their assistance accordingly. They reiterated the German’s support and appreciated the role of the KRG and the JCC.
The meeting discussed the situation of the Internally Displaced People (IDPs) who have been displaced to the Kurdistan Region following the occupation of Mosul city and the military operation to liberate the city. The meeting also discussed the challenges and difficulties before the return of the IDPs to their areas and working on removing such challenges to allow voluntary and dignified return of the IDPs.
The Migration and displacement is not a new phenomenon for us, the Kurdish people, in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Since the creation of Iraq in 1921 and forcefully annexing Kurdistan to Iraq, we as Kurds have faced oppression, tyranny and displacement at the hands of the successive regimes in Iraq from the monarchy to republican and until the fall of Saddam’s regime in 2003. During this period, the people of Kurdistan had faced displacement dozens of times. And until now many Kurdish diaspora in the west died and haven’t had the chance to return home. More details..
The current security developments, the level of destruction of the public and private properties and civic infrastructures in the liberated areas, as well as the lack of funding and clear strategy do not seem encouraging at all for the IDPs and refugees to go back to their homes in the near future.Therefore, there is an immediate need to focus on the resilience of the IDPs, refugees and host communities.
