The semi-autonomous Kurdistan region in the north has become a haven for many of these people, and others have fled Syria's civil war. The U.N. High Commission for Refugees and other aid groups have worked with the Kurdistan Regional Government to set up camps where these people can be sheltered and protected by Kurdistan’s Peshmerga military.
