On August 8, the civilian authorities shared that they expect another outflow of displaced families from NWA, following an extension of the operations taking place. The estimated numbers are 25,000 individuals, of whom many are expected to be family members of existing displaced families. A registration desk with all concerned stakeholders (Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) Disaster Management Authority – FDMA, National Database and Registration Authority – NADRA, etc) is in place at Saidgai checkpoint, where people are expected to exit.
Earlier on August 7, the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) verbally reported 1,000,428 people (95,109 families) registered as displaced from North Waziristan Agency (NWA); 286,624 women (29 percent) and 456,049 children (46 percent).
On August 6, FDMA reported that NADRA reviewed registration data of 93,239 families, of which 53,186 families (57 percent) were verified and 40,053 families (42.9 percent) rejected. Government estimates verified families will be approximately 600,000 people. UNHCR reported an undetermined number of displaced people from five NWA tehsils (Dosali, Ghariwarm, Razmak, Shawa, and Spinwarm) spontaneously returned. Ministry of States and Frontier Regions – SAFRON has confirmed this but has not indicated any numbers. It is possible these returnees are registered and collect their relief assistance in Bannu.
