Since mid-March 2013, almost 60,000 people have been displaced from the Maidan area in the Tirah Valley in Khyber Agency, Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), due to an escalation of hostilities between rival armed groups and the Government’s security operations against armed non-state actors. Meanwhile, a total of 173,091 registered families with an estimated 1 million individuals are currently displaced in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and FATA since 2008.

There are also 1.64 million Afghan refugees and more than 1.3 million returnees to FATA since 2009, who require humanitarian assistance.

In Balochistan government agencies, the military and several on-governmental organizations are involved in the provision of assistance to an estimated 30,000 people affected by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck the border region of Iran and Pakistan on 16 April.
