Humanitarian access continues to be hindered by various constraints; particularly violence against civilians including aid workers/assets, interference in the implementation of humanitarian activities and active hostilities. Since January 2014 more than 2,491 security incidents have been recorded, including 356 acts of violence against humanitarian organisations. In January 2016, incidents of violence against aid workers represent 12% of the total number of incidents during the reporting period. The number of reported access incidents increased by 41%, in January 2016 (75) compared to December 2015 (53).
