ANTI-DAESH MILITARY OPERATIONS IN IRAQ LEAD TO DISPLACEMENT OF 700 PEOPLE: U.N.

Military operations, targeting suspected Daesh militants, in a district of Iraq's Kirkuk, have displaced almost 700 people, since Thursday, said a UN spokesman, Monday.

Those displaced by the fighting in Hawija district are being transported to nearby Daquq displacement camp, where humanitarians are providing assistance, Stephane Dujarric, quoted the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, as reporting.

Humanitarian activities in Hawija have been paused for security reasons, and will resume once military operations in the area conclude, in the coming days, said the spokesman
