Hammam Al-Alil Transition Zone, south east of Mosul city, became a major hub for displaced Iraqis from Mosul as the Iraqi forces pushed deeper into West Mosul. IDPs would be brought here by buses where they went through screening and receiving primary assistance such as health care support, food and water.  They would then be transported in buses to other areas around the city that could shelter them, be it a camp, and emergency site, or other safe areas in the liberated East Mosul where the IDPs had relatives that could take them in.
