(Geneva Call) – The monitoring team is made up of Mehmet Balci, Director for the Middle East, Pascal Bongard, Director of the Policy and Legal Unit and Nicolas Sion, Communication Officer. Our journey to Syria begins in Erbil, the main city in Iraqi Kurdistan. After a few hours of driving, we reach Dohuk, our last stop before Syria and one of the most populated cities in Iraqi Kurdistan. Despite its quiet appearance, Dohuk is facing a dramatic humanitarian crisis: the city and its surrounding region are hosts to more than 450,000 internally displaced people, including many of the Yezidis who have fled ISIS over the past two years and tens of thousands of Syrian refugees.
