1. KHOST & PAKTIKA UPDATE
Displacement of refugees from North Waziristan and South Waziristan Agency into Khost and Paktika provinces continues. When the influx began in mid-June agencies operating on the ground estimated that 13,000 families would be displaced. However, in the past month, when many organizations expected refugees to return, the number is increasing as military operations have expanded. The number of assessed families by ARCS, Directorate of Education, IOM, IRC, NRC and UNHCR/DoRR has now reached 33,000 families.
