Syrian Arab Republic: Humanitarian Dashboard (as of 26 Jan 2013)
The UN estimates that 4 million people – nearly one in five of the pre-crisis population – are in need of humanitarian assistance in Syria.
The particularly harsh winter has compounded the suffering of people in need, especially IDPs living in shelters lacking adequate insulation with no winter clothes and no blankets. Lack of fuel and electricity is affecting heating arrangements for non-displaced population.
Over 60,000 people have been killed since the onset of the crisis. Rocket and bomb attacks in urban centres have been reported, including attacks on residential neighbourhoods, markets and aid convoys
