[Refugee – Iraqis Betrayed Themselves]
[Arwa Damon (Senior International Correspondent) #TheWorldRightNow:]
A tattered doll their mother picked out of the trash and other bits and pieces she scavenged are all the kids have for toys. It doesn’t seem real. It’s like a dream Wisak [ph] says of the home they left behind.
It’s all gone.
The family fled Mosul in the middle of the night. But still, Wisak and her husband couldn’t spare their children the horrors.
We saw ISIS and a car with three bodies and one had no arm, seven-year-old Yaksin [ph] says.
One had his arm cut off and two didn’t have legs, her younger sister adds.
The girls didn’t sleep for days.
It’s all too much for Wisak, haunted by the fear of the present and scars of the past.
Twice over the last 10 years, her husband had a gun pointed to his head. They wanted to kill him because of his ID. Wisak can’t hold back her tears – because of his sect. The second time was when they were in a market, Wisak pregnant with one of the girls.

The family is mixed. They’re both Sunni and Shia. And they used to live in Baghdad, but they had to flee the sectarian violence there. That’s how they ended up in Mosul. For more than a decade now, Iraqis have been trying to keep themselves safe. This most recent ISIS offensive has caused what aid organizations are calling, the single largest mass movement of people in such a short period of time in recent history.
Around half a million people fled Mosul alone over the span of just a few days, dispersed throughout Iraqi Kurdistan in areas like this one. But others are stuck in more remote parts of Iraq help can’t reach.
Aid agencies already buckling under the Syrian refugee crisis had to divert emergency supplies and desperately need more.
Warning, Iraq and Syria’s flow of refugees will impact the region in ways we haven’t seen.
Tears pouring down her face, Wisak can’t understand how she ended up like this.
I swear my heart is burning. The lowlifes ruined our country and from where did they come? From here, she says. Iraqis betrayed themselves.
