Monitoring of the Protection Situation in Besieged East Aleppo City, November 18-20 2016

Subject/Objective: 
This monitoring exercise is the third in an ongoing series conducted by the Syria Protection Cluster (Turkey) to track the protection situation of 270,000 civilians trapped in besieged Eastern Aleppo City. It follows a Rapid Protection Assessment in late August 2016 and monitoring in late October 2016. This exercise was undertaken to understand the impact of the resumed aerial bombardment covering a period of the last 3 weeks.
Methodology: 
Interviews: The interviews for this report were completed from November 18-20, 2016 by the staff of six NGOs working inside East Aleppo city. Given the movement restrictions imposed during this period due to intensified bombardment, humanitarian, social, and medical workers make up the majority of interviewees (59 of 84 total). 68 interviewees were male and 16 were female. The total number of interviews is lower compared to 397 in the late October round. Therefore the difference in number and profile of interviewees should be taken into account in any comparison between the survey results. 15 neighborhoods were reached, as compared to 25 in late October. It should be noted that a large number of Aleppo’s neighborhoods are no longer inhabited, due to the violence and destruction of buildings and civilian infrastructure.
