DAMASCUS/AMMAN, 23 February 2017 – “The heart-wrenching image of a young boy screaming for his father just minutes after losing both his legs in an apparent assault in Idlib last week is another brutal reminder that children continue to come under attack in Syria’s conflict.
“This week, as efforts continue in Geneva to bring together all parties to Syria’s six year long war in an attempt to bring peace, we appeal to all of them to show bold leadership for the rights of children.
Thank you for all of you to be here, I’m convinced it will be worthwhile. We are going to give a serious try. This round is taking place again at the time when we want to give a chance to the Syrian people, to the Syria parties to try to have some type of dialogue leading more beyond than just a conflict.

Syrians fleeing conflict and violence and insecurity are being internally and externally displaced. This map identifies IDP sites in Syria, official refugee camp locations in Turkey, Jordan, and Iraq, as well as areas in Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, and Iraq where sizable concentrations of Syrians are living in urban areas. It also shows numbers of externally displaced Syrians reported in the neighboring countries, as well as in Egypt and North Africa with charts to illustrate numbers of Syrian refugees in neighboring countries and living in camps or outside camps.
This map illustrates shelters in the area of the Rukban border crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian border. Using a satellite image collected by the WorldView-2 satellite on 17 February 2017, UNOSAT located 6,460 probable shelters along the Jordanian side of the border, 25 kilometers southwest of the Al Waleed crossing. This is a 0.3 percent increase in apparent shelters visible compared to the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 03 December 2016.
