As a result of the Syrian crisis, the total number of refugees in Syria has decreased due to the volatile security situation in the country. However, UNHCR continues to receive a significant number of new requests from asylum seekers asking for UNHCR’s protection and assistance. The majority of these asylum seekers are not recent arrivals in Syria but have rather been present here for a number of years and are now seeking protection and/or assistance due to the continuing deterioration of the security situation in Syria.
