In Syria, the delivery of humanitarian assistance to several locations continued to be hampered due to ongoing or renewed hostilities. During May 2017, only three interagency convoys to Duma, Wadi Barada and Jirud in Rural Damascus took place, with UNICEF delivering multi-sectoral assistance to 42,000 people in need.
Baghdad, 22 June 2017 – The Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) for Iraq, Mr. Ján Kubiš, said today that the destruction of the historic al-Nouri Mosque and its landmark leaning minaret during the fighting in Mosul’s Old City by the terrorist Daesh is a clear sign of their collapse.
The increasing use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in a growing number of contexts has led to the issue featuring more and more prominently on disarmament and security policy agendas. In particular, the scale and intensity of the regional conflict involving Da’esh in the Middle East has seen the use of improvised munitions on an unprecedented scale, further amplifying the priority attached to IEDs as a policy issue.

This research, carried out in conjunction with the International Organization for Migration’s Community Revitalization Programme and Social Inquiry, provides an evidence-based analysis of social fragility at the micro-level in areas of protracted displacement and emerging returns in Iraq. Data collected on these dynamics and the information generated from it are used to propose a new design and implementation of social cohesion programmes, with the aim of supporting broader-scale stabilization, development and peacebuilding efforts.
The May precipitation was below average compared to the long-term average (LTA) of 2001-2016 in the entire crop-growing governorate of Duhok, large parts of Diyala as well as in pockets of most other governorates of Iraq. However, larger areas of the country received average to above average rainfall in May, which could impact grazing areas as well as seasonal crop production positively. Compared to May last year, amounts of rain were lower in Duhok, parts of Salah al-Din, Diyala and Anbar governorates and in pockets of most other governorates.
