Snapshot 28 May–2 June 2015
Iraq: 104,000 IDPs from Ramadi district over 15–29 May brings the total number of displaced in Anbar to 238,000 since April. They are facing serious restrictions accessing neighbouring governorates. In Anbar, Islamic State abducted 400 children in the last week of May. The humanitarian response for Syria is facing severe cutbacks due to funding shortages.
Yemen: Violence has escalated even further. Displacement has increased in Sa’ada, Hajjah, and Amran governorates, and the humanitarian situation continues to worsen in Aden, Lahj, Taizz, and Al Dhalee.
Somalia: Nearly 12,000 people have arrived in Somalia from Yemen since late March. 3,665 people arrived in Bosaso, Puntland and Berbera, Somaliland over 21–27 May. Camps are overcrowded and cannot meet needs: Bosaso only has capacity for 500, and Berbera for 200. Authorities in Somaliland have stated they will no longer accept arrivals in Berbera as they cannot provide the necessary assistance. Some 7,000 more people are registered to travel to Somalia.
