Situation Report 5: Recent Developments in Northwestern Syria as of 14 June 2019

Highlights

  • Violence in northwest Syria continued over the last ten days throughout Eid al Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan. Airstrikes and shelling in southern Idleb, northern Hama and western Aleppo governorates is putting civilians at risk and impeding the delivery of assistance.   
  • Humanitarian response is ongoing with hundreds of thousands of people receiving critical assistance essential for their survival. Violence in areas directly affected by conflict is driving displacement into densely-populated areas, putting a strain on service delivery for partners.
  • A further escalation of violence, triggering waves of displacement and complicating humanitarian access and provision of humanitarian assistance risks overwhelming an already stretched response.
