Syria Crisis Dashboard (September 2015)
During the month of September the Syrian conict entered a new phase, with Russian air strikes across the country allegedly targeting terrorists groups in Idleb, Hama, Homs, Aleppo, Raqqa and Deir-Ez-Zour. The airstrikes, and the increased intensity of related clashes, continue to have a negative impact on humanitarian access and delivery of humanitarian assistance.
In response to persisting severe water shortages in Aleppo, UNICEF continued to truck 10,000 m3 of water per day, reaching 700,000 people, while continuing to develop alternative water supply modalities.
In Turkey, two UNICEF teams were deployed to assess the situation of women and children in transit in Izmir, Istanbul and Edirne – the majority of whom are Syrians. A mobile CFS was deployed to serve 100 children a day on the move in Izmir, and was deployed in partnership with the Turkish Red Crescent Society (TRCS) as part of UNICEF’s commitment to providing rapid child protection services in the border areas.
