Syria remains world’s largest displacement crisis: UN official

Xinhua

UNITED NATIONS: Syria remains the world's largest and most dynamic displacement crisis, with half of Syrians displaced from their homes, said UN's top humanitarian official on Wednesday, reports Xinhua. On average, more than 6,500 people have been displaced every day in the first nine months of 2017, UN Undersecretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock told the Security Council. In northeast Syria, as fighting continued down the Euphrates River toward the border with Iraq, airstrikes and clashes have displaced more than 436,000 people from and within Raqqa governorate since the anti-Islamic State offensive began a year ago. Another 350,000 people have been displaced from and within the neighboring governorate of Deir ez-Zor since August 2017, said Lowcock.

Nearly 3 million people continue to live in besieged and hard-to-reach areas in Syria, he said. Some 420,000 people are living in 10 besieged areas, 94 percent of whom are in the rebel-held enclave of East Ghouta near the capital city of Damascus.
