Highlights

  • Humanitarian situation is rapidly deteriorating in Anbar due to the ongoing conflict and limited access to provide assistance to the conflict-affected population.

  • Food and fuel shortages are being reported across the governorate - particularly in Falluja district that has been under siege for over a year.

  • In Fallujah, recent escalation of armed conflict and fuel shortages have severely disrupted the movement of commodities within the governorate, resulting in extreme shortages and high prices of food in local markets.
