On Thursday, the United Nations said up to 200,000 more people potentially could flee Mosul as Iraqi forces continue to push into the last districts still held by Islamic State militants. Since security forces opened a new front against militants in Mosul earlier this month, authorities and aid agencies are already struggling to cope with surging displacement. Lise Grande, the U.N.'s Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq said in a statement, “The numbers of people who are moving are now so large, it’s becoming more and more difficult to ensure civilians receive the assistance and protection they need." Since the start of the campaign last October, nearly 700,000 people have fled Mosul, seeking refuge with either friends and relatives or in camps.
