UNITED NATIONS, - Over one month into Mosul military operations, more than 68,000 Iraqis are currently displaced from Mosul and adjacent districts, a UN spokesman said here Tuesday, citing the International Organisation for Migration (IOM).

"Over the past four days, the agency says, total displacement has increased by more than 8,300 individuals," Stephane Dujarric said, at a daily news briefing here.

"As fighting is progressing inside the city limits of Mosul, more individuals have been displaced from inside the sub-district of Mosul."

The majority of the displaced are from Mosul district, and almost 98 percent of the displaced are currently residing within the Ninewa governorate, the spokesman added.
