Situation Report 8: Recent Developments in Northwestern Syria as of 26 July 2019 (EN-AR)

  • Violence in northwest Syria continues unabated, which is taking a heavy toll on the three million civilians who live in the area. Since the end of April, hundreds of civilians are killed by airstrikes and shelling, while many more have been injured.  
  • Hundreds of thousands of civilians have been forced to flee their homes to escape the violence. The majority of those who are displaced are moving to densely-populated areas where humanitarian assistance is over-stretched.
  • Widespread destruction of civilian infrastructure, such as homes, bakeries, markets, hospitals, schools and water stations, add to the suffering of civilians in northwest Syria and further complicates the provision of humanitarian assistance. 
  • Humanitarian response is ongoing with hundreds of thousands of people receiving critical assistance essential for their survival while additional funding is required to continue supporting all people in need across northwest Syria.
