ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Speaking of a difficult journey and of food shortages, nearly 200 people mainly women and children fleeing the Islamic State-held town of Hawija arrived on Thursday (March 23) in the oil-rich city of Kirkuk. Families were transported by military trucks to Peshmerga positions at Maktab Khaled district, 20 kilometres south of Kirkuk where they undergo security checks before being moved to camps in Lilan district. Hawija, with around 200,000 people, is an important provincial city in its own right. Residents who have managed to flee complained of hard living conditions and lack of food under the control of the Islamic State. Hawija is strategically located east of the road from Baghdad to Mosul and near the Kurdish-held oil region of Kirkuk, the region, 210 kilometers (130 miles) north of Baghdad became an Islamic State stronghold when the ultra-hardline Sunni militants swept across northern and western Iraq in 2014.
