On 20 August 2017 the military operations to retake Telafar and surrounding areas were launched. The DTM has been monitoring preemptive displacement movements from these areas since spring, and with greater intensity since the second half of July 2017 after the conclusion of the military operations to retake the city of Mosul. 36,696 IDPs transited through Hammam Al Aliel screening site since 9 July 2017, of these: 27,660 IDPs currently registered in camp-like settings: 26,232 IDPs in camps and 1,428 IDPs in screening sites; 3,252 IDPs identified in out-of-camp locations: 2,268 IDPs in private settings, 480 IDPs in critical shelter, and 504 IDPs in unknown shelter; 5,784 IDPs estimated in out-of-camp locations. Most displacement took place along a few main axes, through Badosh, Al Masaid and Muhalabiyah areas, in Mosul district. Most IDPs, gathered at mustering points, eventually reached Hammam Al Aliel screening site, from where they roceeded to camps and out-of-camp locations. The DTM set up two integrated monitoring systems, a flow monitoring system at Hammam Al Aliel screening site and the usual Emergency Tracking, which tracks the IDP population at the location of displacement.
