Hundreds of families who fled Tal Afar more than two years ago are waiting anxiously for news that their city has been liberated from the Islamic State group.
Recently, Iraq’s state-sanctioned Shiite militias started a campaign to retake Tal Afar as part of the campaign to retake Mosul.
The families, who are Sunni Turkmen, say they just wish IS to be gone so they can return home.
601 displaced Turkmen families live in the Yahyawa camp, in Kirkuk.
The camp was established by the Kirkuk government in August 2014 and is supported by the Turkish Red Crescent.
