Freedom of movement for civilians is a major concern, with long lines of civilians queuing at open crossing points to and from areas beyond Government control with limited or no access to water, food and sanitation for up to 48 hours.
Medicine and medical supply shortages are reported in several locations in areas beyond Government control, raising concerns about the health status of vulnerable civilians.
At least seven civilians have been wounded and another killed by landmines and UXOs in conflict-affected areas.
The Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) is still very poorly funded with a shortfall of some US$205 million, hence the recent injection of a further CERF Rapid Response allocation of $4.9 million.
