Increased clashes in northern and western Hama governorate have displaced up to 40,000 people to locations in Hama, Homs, Tartous and Lattakia governorates. Some internally displaced people (IDPs) are at risk of further displacement as the frontlines continue to shift.
The humanitarian crisis in Iraq remains one of the largest and most volatile in the world. The pace of displacement over the past three years is nearly without precedent. In 2014, over 2.5 million civilians were displaced in Iraq; in 2015, more than an additional 1 million were forced to flee. During the past year, nearly 700,000 people in areas impacted by the conflict with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have been newly displaced. Every one of the nine major military campaigns during 2016 has created new displacement.
Amman, 25 March 2017
The United Nations marked the International Day of Solidarity with Detained and Missing Staff Members with a renewed call for the immediate release or information of over two dozen staff still being held in detention or missing in Syria.
Humanitarian Needs & Key Figures
● The escalation of hostilities since the beginning of February has put hundreds of thousands of people living in the besieged eastern Ghouta enclave and up to 25,000-30,000 people remaining in Barzeh and Qaboun at risk, and led to a further deterioration of the humanitarian situation in these areas.
● Since 19 March, civilians in the eastern parts of Damascus city have also been affected by the operation launched by Non-state Armed Groups (NSAGs) in Jobar and Qaboun.
Over the past two weeks, fighting around Menbij has displaced over 60,000 people in two major displacement waves.
From 27 - 28 February, fighting in the southwestern countryside of Menbij has displaced more than 35,000 people northwards, and again from 1 March onwards. An estimated 20,000 people were displaced from Maskana,
Dayr Hafir and Al Khafsa to villages in the southwestern countryside of Menbij and to Menbij city itself.
Les Fonds de Financement Communs Pays (CBPF) permettent aux organisations humanitaires d’apporter une assistance rapide et efficace à ceux qui en ont le plus besoin. Ils permettent aux Gouvernements et aux donateurs privés de mettre en commun leurs ressources pour répondre à des crises spécifiques, qu’il s’agisse d’une catastrophe naturelle ou d’un conflit armé.
FONCTIONNEMENT DES CBPF
As the crisis enters its sixth year, 13.5 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Syria and neighboring countries. 6.3 million people have been internally displaced by violence while 5 million people have fled to Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan and Iraq. Since 2011, CERF has allocated over $220 million for displaced people in Syria and the neighbouring countries. Most recently, CERF released $9.4 million through its Rapid Response window to provide urgent health care, protection, nutrition and water and sanitation services for refugees in Jordan.
The conflict in Syria has entered its seventh grim year. Since March 2011, its people have watched huge parts of their beloved country reduced to rubble.
The toll taken on civilians is inexcusable. Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed. Almost five million people – the majority of them women and children – have fled the grotesque violence and deprivation and are now living as refugees. Too many who set out on perilous journeys to escape the war perished on the way.
