More than 6,000 families have fled to the Kurdish city of Dahouk in the past two months, the Red Crescent said. The group said most of those who made it to the city were Christians who have been fleeing in droves from Mosul, Baghdad and other violence-ridden parts of the country. The Red Crescent’s head in Dahouk, Abdulmajeed Shukri, said these were only the families which the group could register. He said thousands more families might have moved to the provincial districts. He said his group lacks the means to register the internally displaced families whose numbers are on the surge.
