Latest Updates To Humanitarian Situation in NW. Syria

We are alarmed by the devastating impact that escalating hostilities are having on children in the north-west of the country.

Today, two toddlers were killed and three other children injured after airstrikes struck a displacement camp in Jisr Al-Shugur in Idleb. Yesterday, shelling in Tawama in western Aleppo damaged three schools.

And on Sunday, six children – all under the age of 10 – were killed in artillery shelling on the Qarqour community. The incident also damaged a primary health center in the town of Ariha that serves 4,500 people each month.

Since 5 October, at least 64 people have been killed by shelling and airstrikes – more than one-third of them children. Three aid workers have also lost their lives, and more than 320 people have been injured.

More than two dozen health facilities have been impacted by shelling and airstrikes, causing disruption to health services.

The UN and our partners are providing food, tents, hygiene kits, protection services and other assistance to those who have fled – with more than 120,000 people newly displaced.

Since 5 October, more than 100 trucks have brought UN aid into north-west Syria from Türkiye – and the UN has completed nearly a dozen cross-border missions.
