The DTM has been monitoring displacement movements from West Anbar areas, particularly the districts of Ana, Al-Ka’im and Ru’ua, since January 2017. Displacement has been taking place since then as a consequence of hostilities in the area, and mainly in anticipation of the larger military operations announced to be launched several times throughout 2017. The DTM has consequently set up an integrated system composed of a flow monitoring system at Kilo 18 screening site and the regular DTM Emergency Tracking, which tracks IDPs at their location of displacement. 62,910 IDPs transited through Kilo 18 screening site since January 2017; 68,454 IDPs displaced from West Anbar since January 2017 and identified at their location of displacement, of these: 46,356 IDPs currently registered in camps; 22,098 IDPs identified in out-of-camp locations, including: 21,366 IDPs in private settings and 732 IDPs in critical shelter.
