Iraqi Christians displaced from their homes by Islamic State militants are now facing great psychological effects.
An aid worker working among these refugees in Iraq says, “There are great psychological effects of displacement. Long-term it looks terrible. IS is so well mobilised, so entrenched. We don’t anticipate them going anywhere quickly. IS have planted bombs. Before anyone goes home, their villages will have to be cleared of unexploded ordinances.”
Terror of these militants has badly affect the Iraqi Christians causing fear, anxiety, depression and other psychological effects as a result they are not willing to go home and prefer to leave Iraq.
