Military operations in southern Syria in July caused the sudden displacement of over 200,000 individuals from Dar’a and Quneitra Governorates. Following the initial displacements nearly 150,000 IDPs returned to their home areas. Nevertheless, there were srill nearly 50,000 new IDPs in Dar’a and close to 5,000 IDPs in Quneitra as of the end of July as a result of the military escalations. Furthermore, over 10,000 IDPs mainly from these governorates, were evacuated to northwest Syria.

NFI Distributions: From 1 to 31 July, IOM supported the distribution of 456 tents and 1,439 NFI kits. The tents were delivered to support the construction of emergency shelters in a camp to be established in coordination with the CCCM Cluster. Furthermore, there are ongoing distributions and monitoring elsewhere in northern Syria. In July, 4,658 newly arrived households were provided with NFI kits, kitchen sets, hygiene items and plastic sheets.

Protection: IOM’s protection team and partners continued with the provision of integrated protection services in a number of reception centres inside Syria, reaching a total of 2,855 beneficiaries through Protection monitoring, child protection and psychosocial activities, GBV case management services and awareness sessions, and family tracing and reunification support.
