June 2021 updates
In June 2021, the humanitarian community tracked some 50,000 IDP movements across Syria, around 51% per cent more than the numbers tracked in May. As in preceding months, most IDP movements were concentrated in northwest Syria, with 95 per cent of these movements occurring within and between Aleppo and Idleb governorates. This was the largest displacement of people since the March 2020 ceasefire and about half of them were due to the escalation in conflict in southern Idleb, with the rest likely due to economic reasons.
