Makhmour Camp

   This camp was established near the city of Mosul in northern Iraq in the early 1990s to house Kurds fleeing from violence in Turkey's southeast provinces. It is under the auspices of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). However, Turkey has long claimed that the camp is being used by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) as a training, recruiting, and recreational center.
