STORYLINE:

The United Nation refugee agency (UNHCR) said over 7,500 Syrian refugees have arrived in Iraq in seven days, some of whom had witnessed explosion and shelling and had to flee for their safety.

Most of the recent arrival to Iraq have come to Bardarash camp in the Dohuk Governorate of northern Iraq. UNHCR said the phased-out camp has been revived for these new refugees. Three out of four are women and children, including unaccompanied children. Most of the Syrian refugees come from cities and villages from northeast of Syria.

SOUNDBITE (Kurdish) Amina Ahmed, Syrian refugee:
“Everyone fled. No one wanted to stay. I think it was only me who brought only a part of the family.”

SOUNDBITE (Kurdish) Amina Ahmed, Syrian refugee:
“I saw my children in my dream last night. I am worried sick about them.”

UNHCR and partners, together, with local authorities are providing a range of services that start from the border. These include reception, provision of hot meals, transportation to the camp, registration, shelter and protection services.

UNHCR said its teams are also conducting protection monitoring, child protection and identification of unaccompanied children and persons with specific needs, already at border reception centres.
