Despite the announcement by the Iraqi government of the final victory over the preaching and ending of the organization throughout the country more than a year and a half ago, 1.5 million displaced people still live in the camps, which are a nightmare for the displaced.

Iraqi IDPs dream of returning to their homes, which they left behind in the provinces of Nineveh, Salaheddine, Anbar and parts of Diyala, Baghdad and Babil after Islamist militants seized control of those areas in the summer of 2014.

Displaced people in Iraq are increasingly suffering during the holy month of Ramadan. Camps are "not a suitable place to spend the holy month," said Ayoub Radhi, a displaced person in the northern province of Salahuddin.

"Our situation is very difficult, and the camps are no longer a suitable place for us. We and our families are suffering countless problems, and we want the government only to take us back to our liberated areas," Radi says.

"Our suffering is increasing day by day, especially in the month of Ramadan, when the fasting person needs the rest that is not available in the camps, besides the difficulties of providing the necessary necessities, in addition to the health aspects," he added.

Many displaced people are still unable to return to their areas of origin as a result of the destruction of their homes during the war; the lack of basic infrastructure for services and the unstable security situation.

Most of the displaced live in camps scattered across the country, much of which lies south of Mosul, the center of Nineveh province.

For his part, Anas Akram, a member of the High Commission for Human Rights, said that about 1.5 million displaced people still live in about 20 camps scattered throughout the country.

Akram explained that «the suffering of the displaced is still registered with the Commission on Human Rights, and they did not receive a high level of services during the month of Ramadan, whether from the government or from international organizations».

"There is a clear lack of provision of services to the displaced during the current month of Ramadan," he said. "There is a shortage of food supplies, a shortage of economic resources, and a lack of government resources to support the displaced."

More than 5 million Iraqis were displaced and left their homes in the provinces of Nineveh, Kirkuk, Salah al-Din, Anbar, Diyala, the outskirts of Baghdad and parts of Babil Province after mid-2014 after the expansion of armed control over the country.

Hamid Jahjih, a human rights activist, said that "the current Ramadan is the worst for displaced Iraqis in the camps because of their neglect by the government and international organizations."

He explained that "the government side did not in turn provide sufficient baskets of food for displaced families in the camps, unlike the past years, which were displaced receive significant assistance during the month of Ramadan.

"By following up on the situation of displaced people in the camps, they are suffering from difficult living conditions, and the best solution is to end their suffering and bring them back to their liberated areas," he said.

But the dream of displaced families returning home remains elusive, as the Iraqi government faces difficulty in providing the most basic living conditions in the liberated areas, so that displaced people can return to their homes.

Some areas in Salah ad Din and Babel governorates do not allow displaced persons to return to them for reasons of security or tribal threats or judicial warrants issued against some displaced persons on charges of supporting an advocacy organization.
