(IraqiNews.com) Dohuk – Nineveh Provincial Council member Anwar Mata announced on Wednesday, that more than 100 thousand Christians have been displaced from Mosul and Nineveh Province, while 20 thousand others have fled the country.

Mata said in an interview for IraqiNews.com, “more than 120 thousand Christians displaced from Mosul and Nineveh after ISIS control on Mosul,” noting that, “about 20 thousand of them have migrated Iraq since last year.”

“The lack of interest of the federal government towards the displaced Christians pushed them to migrate outside the country,” noting that, “the psychological and moral damage was greater than the loss of their money and property as a result of ISIS occupation of Mosul.” Mata added.
