Many of the displaced in this camp, special Tall Afar people, stay temporarily waiting the approval producers to enter to Erbil which they reside or move to Baghdad and other provinces. Either the families that have not supportive and have no financial possibilities they oblige to stay in this camp which lacks for the simplest life necessity, and the high temperature and sandstorm increase of its cruelty.
