• Hostilities escalated dramatically across the country after the suspension of the UN-backed peace talks in Kuwait, claiming civilian lives and leaving heavily damaged civilian infrastructure. Airstrikes resumed in the north of the country and in the capital Sana’a, and ground fighting continued in Taiz, Marib, Al Jawf and Sana’a. Humanitarian access and operations were seriously affected.
The figures for forced migration are staggering and unprecedented. And yet the movement of people is a symptom of a crisis, not the cause. Until there is a global reduction in violence and conflict, the problem will continue to get worse.
As of 17 August, there were 3,344,154 internally displaced persons (557,359 families) across 105 districts and 3,823 locations in Iraq, and 852,390 returnees (142,065 families). At least 47 per cent of these are children under 18.
In August, the RRM Consortium co-led by UNICEF and WFP distributed 28,130 RRM kits as immediate response benefiting 136,236 vulnerable people newlydisplaced by conflict.

A total of 10,499 students participated in a variety of activities and classes in arts, music, sports, French, Arabic, English, and mathematics. A further 1,835 students were enrolled in catch-up classes. Summer learning classes took place in 32 schools, while 22 schools offered catch-up classes.
