Repatriation of Tirah IDPs

Despite several assurances from the federal government as well as the Fata Disaster Management Authority (FDMA), no repatriation plan of thousands of displaced families of Tirah valley in Khyber Agency is announced yet. The government had earlier announced that the internally displaced persons of Fata would be sent back to their homes until the end of 2016. Reports suggest that around 1,800 Kukikhel families were even denied registration since their displacement in 2012 from Tirah. They said that not a single family from the region had returned since the start of repatriation of Tirah IDPs in 2014 nor were they provided with any assistance. Officials of the political administration have said that the Kukikhel areas are yet to be de-notified by the security forces despite the announcement of the end of the Khyber-II ground operations in the region early this year.
Reports suggest that the FDMA had suspended the monthly ration of Bar Qambarkhel families belonging to Jutt Dara, Owch Naw, Tajju and Yagu Mela in the start of the year. Afterwards, it closed down the New Durrani Camp near Sadda in Kurram Agency.
