With no end in sight to the fighting in Libya, people are losing hope of ever returning to normal life. Many regions face regular power cuts, water cuts and fuel shortages, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain health care. Crime and kidnapping are on the rise and people live in constant fear of the shelling and other attacks that continue to hit residential areas and health facilities, leaving many dead or wounded.
Targeting civilians violates principles of humanity

Foreword by the Humanitarian Coordinator
It is almost five years since violence, conflict and instability spread to almost every corner of Libya. The crisis continues to deepen, with over three million people affected, nearly half of Libya’s population. The Libyan people have suffered tremendously and are now exhausted as they continue to live in fear for their safety and future. Many have lost their homes, livelihoods and loved ones.
Syrian refugees and displaced persons seeking refuge from civil war have shown over and over resourcefulness and resilience in their pursuit of keeping families safe. But there is one thing they cannot evade, and that is plummeting temperatures, snow and heavy rain as the bitter winter cold takes hold across the MENA region.
Yemen: 14.4 million people are now food insecure: two million more than in June and four million more than before the escalation of conflict in March. 7.6 million people are severely food insecure. Heavy fighting continues, in particular in Al Dhalee and Taizz governorates. Peace talks between Houthi and government representatives, which were expected to begin mid-November, are yet to take place.
Snapshot 4–10 November 2015
Nepal: Crossings on the India–Nepal border have been closed since late September as a result of protests, leading to fuel shortages that are severely hampering humanitarian assistance. Of particular concern are 400,000 people living in remote areas who cannot be reached during winter and need winterisation supplies. Hospitals in Terai region are reporting acute shortages of medicine, while food and cooking-gas shortages are reported across the country.
