On 3 January 2018, Pakistan granted Afghan refugees in Pakistan a residence extension until the end of January. This is the shortest extension ever given to Afghan refugees in Pakistan and raises concerns of imminent large-scale forced returns. Some 1.39 million Afghan refugees are registered in Pakistan, as well as an estimated one million unregistered Afghans. If returns are enforced, it is likely to have a major impact on shelter, protection, and food needs. However, previous deadlines have been threatened but not enforced, reducing the probability of the risk.

Jerusalem, 17 January 2018

I am deeply concerned about the significant reduction in funding for UNRWA, which is critical to the provision of humanitarian assistance in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt). Some 2.5 million Palestinians in this area, or about half of the population, need humanitarian aid, including 1.4 million Palestine refugees, who are among the most vulnerable groups in the oPt. The reduction is particularly worrying against the backdrop of an overall decline in humanitarian funding in the oPt in recent years.

Sanyora, 35, is a divorced single mother, living with her six children and her brother at her parents’ home in Beit Lahia, north Gaza. Divorce in Gaza comes at a steep price. “I wouldn’t have had the courage to ask for a divorce without the support of my father. He gave away almost all of his savings earned as a fisherman to cede my rights and financially compensate my husband.” Divorced women are frowned upon by society, suffer from stigma and are often discriminated against in the workplace.
