Snapshot 9 – 15 March

Yemen: Insecurity in Aden is increasing, with attacks carried out on civilian targets. At least 150 people have been reported killed in the past three months, including at least 50 in March. Humanitarian actors have increasing difficulty to carry out operations. In Taizz, the west of the city has been taken by pro-Hadi forces after heavy fighting: fighting for the east continues.

Nigeria: The number of IDPs in Borno state has grown by 100,000 since late December, to 1.5 million. People displaced due to the Boko Haram insurgency now make up 96% of IDPs in Nigeria, compared to 84% in December. Overall, the estimated total number of IDPs has increased by 50,000, with more than 2.2 million IDPs identified in 13 states.

Ukraine: Heavy fighting is being reported near a water filtration station in the non-government area of Donetsk. The water plant stopped operating last week and the staff were evacuated. If the facility is destroyed, the water supply to over 400,000 people will be cut off. Civilian casualties in Ukraine doubled between January and February.
