Thousands of years ago, the land between the rivers Euphrates and Tigris was a blooming cultural hub. In the last decades, however, Iraq has been defined primarily as a land of bloody wars. Until end of 2017, parts of Iraq were controlled by the so-called Islamic State, which was fighting the Iraqi army and its international allies. Even after the civil war ended it affects the civilian population particularly strongly. A total of around 4.1 million people in Iraq are dependent on humanitarian assistance.
