Summary

As of December 2017, the barrage of complex issues facing Syrian citizens continued to persist. Alongside the arrival of winter, market prices remained volatile, clashes between numerous armed actors and their negative humanitarian repercussions persisted, while mass movement of internally displaced people (IDPs) continued to increase. Combined, these issues may bring a myriad of problems for Syrian households, putting more people in need, such as in Idleb governorate, a place that has been impacted by many of these challenges.
