UN spokesperson Farhan Haq said on Monday that close to 6,500 families in Ramadi, Iraq, have been dislocated as the Islamic State (IS) militant group has reached the city.

As reported by Xinhua News Agency, Farhan Haq said, “Among the 6,500 families that have fled Ramadi, capital of Iraq’s largest province Anbar, over 3,300 families have moved towards the Fallujah area and more than 2,300 families travelled towards the Khalidiyah area.”

“Khaldiyah Hospital has reported receiving many casualties, and the local authorities have requested assistance from the international agencies”, Haq added.

“UN agencies and humanitarian partners have responded by dispatching food rations, family food packages, tents, sanitation and water kits, conducting joint delivery missions and assessing the needs of families who have fled to safety”.

The IS took complete control over the city on Sunday.

It was reported that on Monday the security force of Iraq, along with the Shia and Sunni militants were preparing for a massive counter-attack to reclaim Ramadi.
