Situation Report 6: Recent Developments in Northwestern Syria as of 28 June 2019

Highlights

  • Violence in northwest Syria has continued unabated since the beginning of May and is putting civilians at risk and impeding the delivery of humanitarian 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 humanitarian actors. Partners are assessing the most urgent needs and gaps across the response to address these.
  • A further escalation of violence, triggering waves of displacement and impeding humanitarian access and provision of humanitarian assistance risks overwhelming an already stretched response.
