Pakistan’s Latest IDP Challenge!

Since the military operation – code named Zarb-e-Azb – began, more than 350,000 people have left North Waziristan as per the FATA Disaster Management Authority. As the operation continues the IDP situation has gotten worse. The refugees are pouring into Bannu, Peshawar and Kohat and it is estimated that around 4,000 families have crossed into Afghanistan. This exodus is not likely to stop soon as the operation is still ongoing.
