Zone North-Inter-cluster Mission


The objective of the mission was to follow-up on initial needs recorded by the UN SRA mission of 26 January, as well as the information on needs shared by NCCI with the Zonal Coordinator. Based on this, priority for mission was given to WASH, Health, Protection and Access.


Methodology includes Interviews on local populations, observations, etc.

Key findings: 

Main findings include:
• Safety and security is still an issue. The level of contamination in both private houses and public buildings (schools were locked and not cleared yet) is still high. Presence of IED is reported to the police regularly but no incidents involving casualties were mentioned to date.
• Civilians interviewed mentioned that they felt safe and could move within the various districts of the city, despite the numerous check points manned by different forces.
• Security is enforced by Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) in coordination with various militias.
• Screening of Tilkaif population: The police commander confirmed that a screening exercise, involving the military intelligence and federal police, will take place in Tilkaif as soon as judges would be available (to follow due process in case of arrest/detention).
• Mine clearance has started by the ISF along key access roads – the next step will be to clear the city itself.
• Access and freedom of movements is restricted towards KRI.
