DTM has been monitoring displacement movements from West Anbar governorate, particularly the districts of Ana, Al Ka’im and Ru’a, since January 2017. ISF operations to retake ISIL's last strongholds in West Anbar intensified in September and finished in November. As most IDPs transit through Kilo 18 and Hamman al-Aleel screening sites, DTM has activated a flow monitoring system for these two sites, in addition to the core DTM methodology of identifying IDPs at their location of displacement and return.
