Situation Overview

New displacements from Kurram Agency

Insecurity inside Kurram Agency (FATA) has resulted in new displacements of civilians. The FATA Disaster Management Authorities (FDMA) estimates that over 6,000 families (approximately 43,000 individuals) will be displaced due to these new hostilities. To host the newly displaced families, FDMA, with support from UNHCR, have established the ‘New Durrani’ camp inside Kurram, close to the city of Saada. So far, 581 families have arrived at the camp, other families are taking shelter in schools in the area and again others are residing with host families in Kurram. There are also families that have left for neighbouring districts in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The UN conducted a security assessment mission to Kurram on 6 July. The recommendations of the mission will form the basis for a response plan to meet the needs of the vulnerable population.
