According to the Times newspaper, More than two million Iraqis are expected to be forced from their homes by fighting over the coming months in a humanitarian catastrophe for which Iraq is ill-prepared, the United Nations has warned.

Lise Grande, the UN’s humanitarian co-coordinator in Iraq, also warned that the world body is itself facing an acute funding shortage.

The Iraqi government, which has been hard hit by low oil prices and the cost of the war against ISIL, is already struggling to cope with 3.3 million internally displaced citizens.
