AMMAN, Nov 15 (Reuters) - The Syrian army backed by Russian jets on Wednesday stepped up shelling and air strikes on a besieged rebel-held enclave in Damascus a day after rebels stormed an army base in the area, rebels, a war monitor and residents said.
Mauritania hosts over 2,200 urban refugees and asylumseekers and almost 52,000 Malian refugees in Mbera, a camp established in 2012 in the arid south-eastern region close to the Malian border.
Despite the conclusion of a peace agreement in 2015, large-scale returns of Malian refugees are not expected due to persistent violence in northern Mali. In October alone, 689 new arrivals were registered in Mbera.
More than 70% of all IDPs supported by the CCCM Cluster in camps are located in Idleb governorate. Additional displacements from other parts of Syria (e.g. Homs, Damascus) are expected and will require an extensive response within the governorate. On July 19, 2017, clashes among AOGs in Idleb led to the temporary suspension of operations by several agencies. Activities have now resumed.

ROME – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is extremely concerned by the destruction this week of food intended for hungry people in the besieged enclave of Eastern Ghouta, about 15 kilometres from the Syrian capital, Damascus. The food was destroyed during fighting inside the enclave when food distribution points belonging to one of WFP’s local partners in Duma were hit. Fortunately, no people were in the buildings at the time of the strikes.
Between 1 January and 31 October 2017, 14,597 unaccompanied and separated children arrived in Italy by sea, representing 13% of all sea arrivals in this period. This proportion is comparable to the first nine months of 2016, when 14% of those arriving by sea were UASC. Their numbers, however, have decreased compared to last year, when 22,772 UASC arrived in the first ten months of the year.
Between 1 January and 31 October 2017, 111,397 persons arrived in Italy by sea. This is a 30% decrease compared to sea arrivals in the same period last year (159,427).
Disembarkations slowed as of mid-July 2017, with monthly arrival numbers being significantly lower since, compared to 2016. In October 2017, 5,979 persons reached Italy by sea, compared to 27,384 registered at landing points in October 2016.
