A total of 7,204 households (36,666 individuals) have been recorded as arriving to non-camp settings since camp closures began in mid-October. 4 Of the total recorded arrivals since 18 October 2020, 2,039 households (28%) have not returned to their location of origin and are now considered to be secondarily displaced, while 5,165 households (72%) have returned to their respective village or neighborhood of origin and are considered to be returnees. In addition, 654 households (3,255 individuals) have been recorded as making additional secondary movements from one non-camp location to another after leaving their respective camp.
These movements mainly occurred in Khanaqin and Al-Muqdadiya districts in Diyala governorate. The main cause of these movements is reportedly due to households obtaining security clearance allowing for onward travel.
