Many families have been displaced in North Kivu as a result of a military “mopping-up operation” along the DRC-Rwanda border over the past few weeks, humanitarian sources said. The families have lost their houses and belongings. Humanitarian agencies in the area are planning to assist the affected families and help them return to their home areas.
