The UN says the ongoing clashes between Iraqi forces and the ISIL Takfiri terrorists have forced 90,000 people to leave the western province of Anbar.

Lise Grande, the UN humanitarian coordinator in Iraq, said on Sunday that the displaced people in Anbar are in dire need of humanitarian aids.

"Our top priority is delivering life-saving assistance to people who are fleeing- food, water and shelter are highest on the list of priorities."

"Seeing people carrying what little they can and rushing for safety is heart-breaking," the UN official added.

She expressed concern about "people’s safety; the situation is dramatic and only urgent action can save lives."

"We are doing what we can to help, but the humanitarian operation in Iraq is severely underfunded."

Iraqi soldiers, police units, Kurdish forces, Shia volunteers and Sunni tribesmen have succeeded in driving the ISIL terrorists out of some areas.
