Jordan + 3 others
Three million tragic stories. When will it end?

By Misty Buswell, Director of Advocacy, Media & Communications, Middle East and Eurasia Regional Office, Jordan

29 August 2014 marks another terrible milestone in the Syria crisis: the three millionth registered refugee.

The war is more than three years old. At least 191,000 have died and nearly 11 million are in need of humanitarian aid inside Syria.

Meanwhile, three million, including more than 1.5 million children, have now fled a country in chaos. And those are only the ones who are officially registered.

Ukraine: Situation report No. 9 as of 29 August 2014

Highlights:

  • Rebels are threatening to take the key port of Mariupol, after opening a new front in the south-east. They have reportedly captured the town of Novoazovsk and are advancing on the port. This is likely to create another wave of displacement amongst people living in an area that until now had escaped fighting.

  • At least 2,593 people have been killed (including at least 28 children) and 7,159 wounded (including at least 46 children) in eastern Ukraine as of 27 August1 (source OHCHR).

3 million refugees and no end in sight

Report
Tearfund

Life in Syria is so bad that around three million people have had to leave. According to the latest UN reports, the number of people leaving the country to seek refuge is likely to reach three million today (Friday 29 August).

Most of these people are living in neighbouring countries, including Lebanon and Jordan where Tearfund and other agencies are helping them.

The conflict in Syria began more than three years ago in March 2011. Since then nearly 200,000 people have died in the fighting, according to some estimates. More than 6 million people are homeless.

Lebanon: Akkar Governorate Profile (as of 11 August 2014)

GENERAL OVERVIEW

North Lebanon, which previously constituted one governorate with seven districts was effectively split into two governorates in 2014, following an earlier administrative decision. Tripoli and five surrounding districts (T5) maintained the denomination of North Governorate, while the district of Akkar became a governorate with the same name. While certain institutions and positions were divided (e.g. the post of the governor), others remain joint for the two governorates (e.g. the North Lebanon Water Establishments).
