An Iraqi refugee girl, who fled the Iraqi city of Mosul due to the fighting between government forces' and Islamic State (IS) group's jihadists, fills a container with water at the UN-run al-Hol refugee camp in Syria's Hasakeh province, on December 5, 2016. Despite the war that is ravaging Syria and has displaced millions of its residents, the Iraqis are desperate to reach the UN-run Al-Hol, where many are still trapped on the border between Iraq and Syria under jihadist fire.
