In total, 193 Syrians (16% of the total number of returnees) have been returned to Turkey to date and none have been returned on the basis that their claim was found inadmissible.

With generous support from Islamic Relief partners, Islamic Relief Syria provided food parcels for 155,000 people in Hama, Idlib and Aleppo governorates. We prioritised Aleppo and Idlib because of the large numbers of displaced people, many of whom have been displaced multiple times and as a result, are extremely vulnerable.
The searing hot weather proved a challenge for both the Islamic Relief team and the people receiving the food so we started the distributions very early in the morning and completed them before noon.
