It’s a war that has gripped the Middle East for years, and the world’s attention is finally shifting to the refugee crisis.
As the United States and its allies take on ISIS in Iraq and Syria, the region is turning to a new generation of refugees who are fleeing persecution and economic hardship, and many are finding their way into Western Europe.
The latest numbers from the United Nations show that at least 13 million people are seeking asylum in Europe and the Middle Europe, and that is just a drop in the bucket.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) reports that at the start of this year, some 4.6 million people had applied for asylum, more than double the number in the year prior.
That number is expected to double this year.
But the number of new asylum seekers continues to rise, according to the International Organization.
And it’s not just in Europe, the number is rising in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, too.
The numbers are staggering, especially for the region’s most vulnerable: those fleeing poverty, war, or persecution.
“We’ve been seeing an explosion of refugee numbers over the last several years,” says Mamdouh Ghannouchi, director of refugee and migrant advocacy for the U.K.-based Refugee Council.
What Is a Refugee? “
There are people in Europe that have been in the refugee camps for a long time, but they don’t know what’s coming next.”
What Is a Refugee?
The term refugee is often used to describe anyone who has been forced to flee their country because of persecution or persecution-related events.
In reality, refugees are often people who fled their homes and families in their home countries due to war, persecution, violence, or discrimination, but have not been able to find safe haven in their countries.
Refugees are often forced to move to new countries to find work, because their countries are in a state of war.
They are sometimes forced to return to their home country to find a new place to live.
Many of the refugees are forced to leave behind their families and communities in order to be able to seek asylum.
Refugees often are unable to access jobs or housing in their new countries because of government restrictions or economic hardship.
Refugees, in turn, are forced into illegal work, like in the construction industry, which is a form of trafficking.
Many refugees have little chance of getting a job, which makes them vulnerable to exploitation and abuse.
A new surge of refugees, however, has been happening for years.
Some have been fleeing conflict in Syria and Iraq, some have been seeking asylum from persecution in Afghanistan and other places, and some have even been escaping the threat of being persecuted by ISIS.
The United Nations estimates that over 1.5 million people have been displaced by conflict and conflict-related persecution in the Middle Eastern region, including over 2 million Syrian refugees.
The IOM also projects that there are at least 6 million refugees in Europe.
A large part of the new arrivals is due to the migrant crisis, which has been the focus of media coverage and international attention.
The refugee crisis has been dubbed the “Third World War” by the United Kingdom’s government, and several European countries have begun accepting refugees from Syria.
The number of refugees has also increased in the wake of the refugee deal that was signed by the EU, the United states, and Turkey on Oct. 1.
The agreement, which took effect Oct. 15, provides $12 billion in funding for resettlement, and will allow some refugees to apply for asylum in the EU for the first time.
The U.N. Refugee Agency estimates that at its peak, some 1.8 million people were displaced in the region.
A number of countries have also signed the refugee agreement, including the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Jordan.
But despite the agreement, the refugee number is still rising.
The recent surge of arrivals, and increased tensions between the countries that are participating in the deal, has sparked a backlash among those countries.
The EU and Turkey have expressed concerns about the influx of refugees into their countries and have been accused of being too accommodating to the refugees.
But while these fears have been expressed, there is no real evidence that the refugees themselves are contributing to the crisis.
The only way to truly understand the refugee issue is to get to the root of the problem.
Refugees have often been called “refugees of their own country” and have frequently been blamed for the problems of their home societies.
“It’s like blaming the victims for everything that’s wrong in their own society,” says Ghannouchei.
“And then when you go back and look at how these refugees were affected, they’re the ones that are actually the ones who are being blamed.”
Some refugees have found that there is a “code of silence” around the issue. “A
