Dozens of Families Fled Mosul, Arrive at Syrian Borders

BEIRUT Dozens of families from the Iraqi city of Mosul, including relatives of the Islamic State members, have arrived to the Syrian border city of Al-Bukamal, activist Mohamed al-Khalif told EFE.

Al-Khalif, a member of the Syrian Network for Human Rights in the province of Deir al-Zour, explained to EFE through the internet that dozens of families, mostly civilians with no connections with the Islamic State, have arrived on Tuesday morning to Al-Bukamal.

He added that the displaced moved first from Mosul to the city of Al-Qaim, and then continued to Al-Bukamal, from where they took different paths towards other destinations, such as the Syrian city of Al-Mayadin.

Two days ago, the Iraqi army and its allies began an offensive against Mosul, the IS stronghold in Iraq, to regain control over the city.
