Crisis in Syria

Speeches Shim

This is a time of unparalleled need. No single country can bear this responsibility alone. Our response - as nations, as individuals, as organizations and as communities- must be equally unprecedented. You can help.

Syria Complex Emergency - Fact Sheet #1 - Military operations by Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and Turkish-supported opposition groups that began on October 9 displaced up to 215,000 individuals in parts of northeast Syria’s Aleppo, Al Hasakah, and Ar Raqqah governorates, according to the UN. As of November 4, nearly 115,500 people had returned to areas of origin, while more than 99,600 people remained displaced. Large-scale TAF military operations subsided in mid- and late October following various political agreements, prompting some displaced individuals to return to areas of origin; however, hostilities continue to damage civilian infrastructure and exacerbate humanitarian needs, relief organizations report.
