As fighting in Iraq continues, so does the influx of people fleeing the conflict. Some 300,000 Iraqis, by official count, have sought shelter in the comparatively peaceful Kurdistan region over the past month. Most fled violence in Iraq's second city of Mosul and surrounding areas. A warehouse in the middle of empty wheatgrass fields became home to 5,000 Iraqis from the town of Telafar. Aid agencies provide basic facilities as well as meals to families living here, as they await transfer to other parts of Iraq that offered to house them. In the middle of July 2014, a warehouse in the middle of empty wheatgrass fields became home to 5,000 Iraqis displaced from Mosul and surrounding areas. "We felt like we left our homeland... The feeling of being a refugee is very difficult... We haven't been through anything like this before." Meet Yehya and his family, some of the 300,000 displaced from Iraq into northern Kurdistan since June.
