FSD operations started in October 2015 in the ISIS liberated areas in Northern Iraq. Operations aim to release safe land to the population returning from the displacement caused by the fighting related to the presence of ISIS.

The level of contamination and the risk deriving from unexploded remnants of war are extremely high. FSD teams are working with an enormous effort to support the local population toward the process of resettlement and recovery.

The environment is technically very challenging and the conditions of work harsh for the extreme weather; however the teams are achieving great results in terms of released land and destroyed items.
