Syrian Kurds flee to northern Iraq

Published on October 15, 2019 by

Syrian Kurds fleeing the fighting in northeast Syria are starting to arrive in northern Iraq after Turkey’s operation in the region to rout the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces begins.
The authorities there say they could be the first of tens of thousands of refugees.
Plans are being made to accommodate the new arrivals, but the priority for the Kurdistan regional government is to stop fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) armed group and their supporters from infiltrating the crowds of refugees.
