200 families return to refugee camps due to ISIS attacks in Iraq's Kirkuk

200 families return to refugee camps due to ISIS attacks
About 200 families returned to refugee camps in central Iraq's Salahudin province on Wednesday as attacks by ISIS militants increased recently in neighboring Kirkuk province, an official told Xinhua.

"The Tal al-Seibat refugee camp in northern part of the town of al-Alam, some 30 km east of Salahudin's provincial capital Tikrit, has received some 200 families who left their homes, mainly in the town of Ryadh, Rashad and Abbasi and villages in Hawijah Pocket in southwestern part of Kirkuk province," the official from the local government of Alam said on condition of anonymity.

During the past few months, hundreds of families returned to their homes in Hawijah area after the Iraqi security forces dislodged ISIS terrorists from their redoubts in Hawijah, but the almost daily attacks, killings and abductions by remnants of ISIS terrorists recently pushed the families to flee their homes again, the official said.
