Afghanistan: Northeast Conflict Situation Situation Report No. 8 (as of 13 October 2015)
Reports of relative calm and some restoration of services within Kunduz city centre, with reports of sporadic fighting continuing on the outskirts of the city.
Operations have been restored at the Kunduz Regional Hospital.
Some positive developments in access to Kunduz city on 12 October, but questions remain about the extent of potential access due to continued insecurity in some areas.
Water and electricity have been restored to some parts of the city, but other basic services remain unavailable due to damage from the conflict.
Initial estimates continue to indicate 14,000 families displaced within the Northeast, with an estimated 2,800 families displaced to Central Region.
Assessment nearing completion in Taloqan with about 7,000 displaced families verified throughout the city and in two settlements.
Critical needs for the majority of IDPs are initially assessed to be food and shelter, with NFI, health, WASH, and protection also key.
Conditions in some IDP settlements are extremely basic and in others very congested.
Stocks of food, NFIs and medical supplies are in the region with additional shipments of needed supplies being prepared; access challenges continue both within and outside Kunduz.
Additional funding is required to the 2015 Humanitarian Response Plan, to replenish emergency stocks.
