Refugees fleeing war and prosecution while crossing the River Tigris in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq

The Kurdistan Region of Iraq is among areas in the region currently seeing arrivals of Syrians. Border crossing points there from Syria were all but closed from mid-September until the start of January, when the Peshkabour crossing was reopened.
Since then some 5,000 people have crossed, and several hundred now arrive every afternoon.
