On November 30, the last flight of an Iraqi airline took place to take out Iraqi migrants who found themselves on the Belarusian-Polish border, the press secretary of the Ministry of Migration and Displaced Persons of Iraq, Ali Abbas Jahanker, said.
There are several families left on the border of Belarus and Poland who will be looking for an opportunity to cross the border and get to Europe.
More than 1,800 Iraqi citizens stranded on the Polish-Belarusian border were evacuated by Iraqi Airline planes. The export of migrants from Belarus is carried out at the expense of the Iraqi government.
On November 18, the first export flight was made on the Minsk- Erbil - Baghdad route with more than 400 migrants on board. On November 26, the press secretary of the Iraqi Foreign Ministry, Ahmed al-Sahhaf, said that on November 27, the authorities planned a fifth evacuation flight, and the total number of Iraqis who returned to their homeland should be about 1,9 thousand people. Among which there are several Yezidi families.
The migration crisis on the borders of Belarus with Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, where refugees have flocked since the beginning of the year, sharply escalated on November 8. Several thousand people approached the Polish border from the Belarusian side, some of them tried to enter the territory of Poland by breaking the barbed wire fence. Later, about two thousand people were placed in a transport and logistics center in Bruzgah near the border with Poland, where conditions for temporary stay were created. According to the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, there are from two to three thousand refugees from the Middle East on the territory of the republic, in addition to those housed in this camp.
