Over 1,800 Iraqis displaced by Turkish shelling, says UNHCR

The UN refugee agency expressed concern Tuesday over the increasing number of people being driven from their homes by Turkey's shelling of northern Iraq. More than 1,800 people have fled their homes in the Sangasar sub district of Sulaimaniyah Governorate and in Doli Shahidan in Erbil Governorate last weekend, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees said.
