Iraq: 1.2 million people have been displaced by the ISIL June offensive and the Anbar crisis. Humanitarian access to militant-held areas remains a challenge. The security situation in Anbar, Ninevah, Salah al Din and Diyala is volatile and unpredictable. Host communities are facing difficulties assisting new IDPs and over 226,000 Syrian refugees.

Pakistan: The military offensive against the Taliban in North Waziristan has reportedly killed up to 30 Taliban and displaced at least 300,000 people to neighbouring provinces as well as Afghanistan.

Syria: OCHA has increased its estimates of people in need in Syria to 10.8 million, nearly half of Syria's population. Conflict continues to intensify in many parts of the country while the Syrian Government is at loggerheads with the UN Security Council over aid access.

Sudan: 31,000 of 85,000 arriving from South Sudan have not received any humanitarian assistance, and 67,000 IDPs in West Kordofan urgently need aid. In Red Sea state, a dengue outbreak has been reported. In Central Darfur, 130 people have been killed in intercommunal violence.
