A crisis in its 9th year in March 2020

The war in Syria will be nine years old in March 2020 and remains one of the world‘s most complex humanitarian crises. Constant conflict has led to a sustained, constant erosion of livelihoods and communities, and the world’s biggest displacement crisis since the Cold War.

In the West of Syria — while underreported in local and international news networks — the still-hot conflict between State-Affiliated Groups and ‘opposition’ actors continues, with a ground and air campaign leading to significant civilian casualties and the rendering of damage to crucial public services such as hospitals, schools & water networks.

This almost decade long conflict has caused repeated, protracted levels of displacement, with millions of Syrians living as IDPs (Internally Displaced Persons) fleeing from the southern reaches of Idleb and Aleppo Governorates to the northern border with Turkey and many more forced to flee their country entirely to the relative refuge of neighbouring states, particularly Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon.

New conflict displaces many in Idlib and the Northwest

According to the United Nations, some 600,000 people have fled their homes in north western Syria since mid-December, 2019 as Syrian and Russian airstrikes pummel the rebel-controlled region, where around 2.7 million people live or have taken shelter. The UN estimates over 1,300 civilians have been killed since the onslaught began in late April 2019, and hospitals and clinics have repeatedly been bombed.
