Situation Report 12: Recent Developments in Northwestern Syria as of 20 September 2019


The humanitarian situation remains alarming across northwest Syria where the effects of conflict continue to have a devastating impact on the lives of an estimated four million people.

Hundreds of civilians have been killed or injured due to airstrikes and shelling since late April. In this period, more than 400,000 people from northern Hama and southern Idleb governorates fled their homes to escape from violence and to access essential services to survive.

While the humanitarian response is ongoing to address the pressing needs of the newly displaced individuals as well as host communities, additional funding is urgently required to maintain and scale-up humanitarian response in the coming weeks and months.
