According to the head of the civil defense of Zakho, a fire broke out in a camp for Yazidi refugees and displaced persons (IDPs) in Dohuk province, because of which at least 10 people were hospitalized.

The fire broke out at 11 a.m. in the Badget-Kandal camp, where the Yezidis live, as a result, up to 20 large tents burned down. Presumably, the cause of the incident was a short circuit.

According to data provided by the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) for May, more than 1,690 families, numbering 8,450 people, live in Badget-Kandal.

Fires are a common occurrence in displaced persons camps in the Kurdistan Region.

In May, a fire also broke out in the Khanke camp in Dohuk, because of which at least eight tents burned down, but, fortunately, the residents were not injured.

In 2021, an explosion at the Kadiya camp in Dohuk killed two children, including a one-month-old baby, and injured two more children.

Even though the militants of the terrorist group ISIS have been expelled from Shangal, thousands of Yazidis remain in camps for displaced persons, as their homes need to be rebuilt.

On October 10, 2020, Erbil and Baghdad reached an agreement to normalize the situation in Shangal to create safe conditions for the return of the displaced Yazidis because of the genocide. According to the agreement, all armed groups, including the PKK and the Hashd al-Shaabi militia, must leave the area, but the Iraqi government has not yet been able to achieve this.

Last month, more than 10,000 Yazidis were forced to leave their homes in Shangal and ended up in camps for refugees and displaced persons due to conflicts in the region.
