New York, 30 January 2018
Thank you, Mr. President.
Thank you for the opportunity to provide an update on the humanitarian situation in Syria.
Years of conflict have caused immeasurable human suffering and left countless civilians dead, injured or missing. The United Nations estimates that 13.1 million people are in need of protection and humanitarian assistance, including 6.1 million people who are displaced within the country. Another 5.5 million people have fled the conflict across borders into neighbouring countries.
• Hostilities in north-western Syria continued with fighting reported in the southern and eastern countryside of Idleb Governorate, as well as Afrin district.
• Civilian displacement in Idleb Governorate continues as hostilities intensify. The Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster tracked a total of 272,345 displacements to central and northern rural Idleb as well as northern rural Hama and western rural Aleppo (some may be secondary displacements) between 15 December and 24 January.
According to UNHCR, 5,481,262 have now fled Syria to surrounding countries in the region. 1.4 million of them fled in 2014 alone with an average of more than 3.935 people fled every day. In 2015 more than 617,188 Syrians fled the country, an average of more than 1,714 per day. In 2017 more than 623,374 Syrians fled the country, an average of more than 1,731 per day.
Children now make up 47.7% of the refugee population, meaning there are an estimated 2,614,561 refugee children in the region.
