The second stop was in the village of Imam Gharbi, located southern al-Qayyarah in the province of Nineveh, whose inhabitants were displaced a second time after that the ISIL gangs entered to it a month ago and caused lot of damages as they killed and captured some of them while others were displaced.

As this is the fourth convoy to reach the people of the village "Imam Gharbi" since the beginning of the liberation operations in Mosul. The displaced in al-Jad'ah camp have told us to convey their greetings, thanks and gratitude to His Eminence Sayed al-Sistani and to the members of his office and to all those who participated in this humanitarian effort including the supervisors of al-'Ayn Foundation, as they did not receive any assistance from any party in this quantity and quality. And the people of the village Imam Gharbi have the same feelings and one of them added: "Sayed al-Sistani has unified us with his humanitarian positions."
