DTM flow monitoring data compiled from national authorities and IOM offices show that the number of arrivals through Mediterranean routes between January and March 2018 is half the number of arrivals in the same period in 2017. In the first quarter of 2018 a total of 1,956 migrants and asylum seekers arrived in Europe using different land and sea routes, in comparison to 34,531 registered in the first quarter of 2017. As previously reported, the decrease is mainly due to the drop in arrivals in Italy.

This included 1.25 million IDPs in Syria, 1.8 million Syrian refugees in the region, nearly 482,000 IDPs in Iraq, and over 84,000 Iraqi refugees in the region. With early planning, preparation and procurement, timely and efficient response was provided ensuring families were equipped to survive the winter.

The Syrian government is set to seize the property of millions of Syrians who fled their homes, unless they return to claim them by presenting ownership deeds to local authorities.
Under a law introduced in April, the 6 million Syrians who fled their homes to escape the carnage and 7 million displaced to other parts of the war-torn country have until May 10 to register their properties or forfeit their homes. “The remaining plots will be auctioned,” according to legislation known as Law No. 10.
Before the start of the conflict, Syria was home to one of the youngest populations in the world. Around one third of the Syrian population is between 10 and 24 years old. The seven years of war in Syria has had a devastating impact on adolescents and youth. Instead of entering an age of transition filled with learning, exploration, dreams, and ambitions - they have been continuously exposed to a brutal war, experiencing indescribable suffering through displacement and continued conflict, which impacts not only their present but also their future.
