Nearly half of these three million people are Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) displaced from other locations, while two thirds of the total population are already considered in need of humanitarian assistance according to the latest coordinated assessments.
The Syrian War is entering its eighth year and has left millions of people physically, mentally and emotionally affected. The United Nations reports 28% of Syrians have been driven from their homes and identifies 5 million Syrians as refugees outside of Syria.
Some people may seek to move into the Afrin and Northern Aleppo governorate areas. Others will move temporarily in a short-term displacement. Regardless of the movement type, the affected people will require support. Islamic Relief, UN agencies and humanitarian partners are working together to be prepared for a potential new displacement should an offensive be launched onto Idlib.
Refugees in northern Syria are not allowed to enter Turkey. We are however, active in distributing humanitarian aid into Idlib.
Syrians are in dire need of help. Idlib currently homes an estimated 3 million people. Give to Syria Now.
