Situation update on north-east Syria - 24 Oct 2019

With winter looming in north-east Syria, the well-being of an estimated 120,000 people in displacement camps, sites, collective shelters and informal settlements remains a major concern for UN agencies and humanitarian partners.

UN agencies and humanitarian partners are scaling up their response to meet the increased needs. Food has been delivered to 256,000 people so far this month. Winter items have been distributed to 100,000 people.
