Rohingya exodus: Hide, run, pay and stay alive

25 Jun 2018  |  WION
The article details the harrowing journey of Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in Myanmar, with a focus on Nizamuddin, a refugee who made it to India. It describes the perilous routes taken by the Rohingyas to escape the ethnic violence that erupted in 2012, following allegations of rape by Muslim men against a Buddhist woman. The violence led to deaths, destruction of property, and a mass exodus. Refugees like Nizamuddin had to navigate through jungles and mountains, and pay hefty sums to agents for safe passage, often selling their possessions to afford the journey. The article also touches on the economic exploitation by agents at the borders and the complex historical context of the Rohingyas' statelessness in Myanmar. It highlights the challenges faced by refugees in their new countries, including legal status, survival, and the uncertainty of the future.

The female casualty of Mosul

22 Jul 2017  |  DNA India
The Hammam Al Alil Refugee Camp near Mosul, housing only women and children, underscores the disproportionate impact of war on women. Fatima, a resident of the camp, recounts her family's temporary financial prosperity under the Islamic State due to salaries paid for each child and wife affiliated with IS. However, the advance of the Iraqi Army and Al Hashd Al Shabi on Tikrit in 2015 forced her family to flee to Mosul, where her stepson was killed and her husband, a former member of the Iraqi special forces who joined IS, was captured. Fatima's narrative reflects the common plight of women in the camp, whose husbands and sons joined IS out of fear and now seek mercy.

US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces announce campaign to liberate Raqqa from Islamic State

06 Nov 2016  |  dnaindia.com
The Syrian Democratic Forces, predominantly composed of Syrian Kurds YPG, announced the start of the 'Euphrate’s Anger' campaign to liberate Raqqa from the Islamic State. The US is providing air support, similar to the 2015 battle for Kobane. This operation coincides with the Mosul offensive against Islamic State in Iraq. The US's support of the Kurds may strain relations with Turkey, which opposes a significant Kurdish role in the offensive and has recently moved closer to Russia. Turkey's crackdown on Kurdish citizens and organizations has drawn international criticism. The US-SDF alliance and the timing of the announcement, just before US elections, positions the US as a prominent actor against Islamic State.

Islamic State chief Baghdadi ‘trapped’ in Mosul

03 Nov 2016  |  dnaindia.com
Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is reportedly trapped in Mosul, Iraq, as Iraqi forces approach the city's eastern suburbs. The loss of Mosul is expected to be a significant psychological blow to IS, undermining its narrative of statehood. The battle for Mosul is intensifying with urban guerrilla warfare, and Iraqi forces are facing fierce resistance. The importance of local support in the fight against IS is emphasized by Iraqi military officials.

IS mounts defense with underground tunnels

25 Oct 2016  |  dnaindia.com
The Islamic State (IS) has constructed a network of well-equipped underground tunnels in the northeast corridor to Mosul, providing hideouts and enabling movement between buildings without detection. These tunnels, reminiscent of those used by Viet Cong during the Vietnam War, are equipped with electricity, food, and other essentials, allowing IS fighters to survive for months and counter airstrikes. The discovery of these tunnels suggests that the Mosul offensive could be prolonged, with the city's dense construction and small lanes already providing ideal conditions for urban guerrilla warfare. The Iraqi Army, facing a well-organized enemy with fighters from Saddam Hussain's army, must contend with booby-trapped tunnels, car bombs, and the potential for high civilian casualties. IS also employs tactics like setting oil fields ablaze, as seen with the Mishraq sulphur plant. The Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi acknowledged the loss of military equipment when the Iraqi Army abandoned Mosul. The stabilization of Mosul will require constant patrolling and a significant number of troops to counter the underground resistance.

Iraqi offensive on Mosul continues on two fronts, but IS will not give up without a fight

21 Oct 2016  |  DNA India
The Peshmerga and Iraqi Security Forces launched a major offensive against Islamic State from the north, northeast, and south of Bashiqa, aiming to reconquer villages and secure areas before advancing towards Mosul. The conflict involves a mix of traditional and guerrilla warfare, with high visibility making both sides vulnerable to artillery and airstrikes. Islamic State has been employing suicide vehicle attacks and may use chemical weapons to defend Mosul. A sophisticated network of tunnels was discovered, and there are concerns about the use of civilians as human shields by IS.
