(6 Sep 2019) LEAD IN Hundreds of thousands of Syrians are displaced as the war on the last rebel stronghold Idlib continues, with many in desperate need of medical treatment. Medical facilities which are still open are overflowing and running extremely low on treatment. STORY-LINE Months after continuous bombing, thousands of displaced Syrians are facing a shortage of medical treatment with many hospitals and clinic shut. Killy Medical Centre in the north of the country is one of the few in the area to remain open. Today, hundreds of patients queue and wait in its corridors, desperate for its limited treatment. People have fled the northern Hama countryside and southern Idlib countryside as the war continues between the Russian-backed Syrian regime and the rebels affiliated with Al-Nusra Front in their last stronghold, Idlib. Abdullatif Al-Ahmed, the manager of Killy Medical Centre, estimates 80  percent of patients who visit the centre are displaced: "Due to the shelling on northern Hama countryside and southern Idlib countryside in the past three months, the town received a huge number of displaced who are visiting the centre on a daily basis," he says. "It is estimated that for out of 250 patients visiting the centre, 170 to 180 are from the displaced." Al-Ahmed says between 8,000 and 9,000 patients visit the centre each month. Those who left their houses behind now find themselves spread in the olive fields, living in tents. Ibrahim Abdullah, a wounded man, lives here with his five children, his wife and his mother. He who lost his leg in a Russian air raid on his house in Maaret Al-Numan: "They moved me to Maaret Hospital, but they did not admit me due to the shortage of a medical team, then they moved me to Bab Al-Hawa where they amputated my leg and now I am getting treatment in Killy hospital where a new operation will be conducted in order to remove the metal plates from my leg." He adds that living conditions in the fields are difficult saying: "Lots of flies, scorpions and snakes are living around us." According to the humanitarian coordinator in Killy, more than a million displaced people have arrived at the town. Muayed Shaker says: "We have a shortage of shelters, tents, medical staff, medicine. We are dealing with some medical cases while the complicated cases are moving towards Turkey." According to the UNHCR, more than 5.6 million people have fled Syria since 2011, seeking safety in Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and beyond. 6.6 million more are internally displaced inside Syria as fighting continues.

Throughout the Syrian war, families fleeing from conflict all over the country headed to Idlib province. But Idlib itself has been under attack since April, and with the population now doubled at three-million, it's getting harder to live there - and even harder to learn as Sarah Balter explains. #Idlib, #Syria, #SyrianWar Subscribe: Livestream: Facebook: Twitter: Instagram: Visit our website:

(4 Dec 2016) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 4069363 Syrian warplanes, artillery and mortar rounds pounded areas in eastern Aleppo on Saturday drawing rebel rockets, as government troops gain new ground in the shrinking opposition-held enclave. After four years of holding nearly half of the divided city, rebel fighters have been increasingly squeezed into the center of the eastern enclave. Government and allied troops, including Lebanese, Iraqi and Iranian fighters, have concentrated their fight on the northeastern part of the enclave, swiftly taking new districts since their offensive began last week. Another front on the southern outskirts of the city has been slower, as rebel fighters push back government advances there. The advances have caused massive displacement. The U.N. estimated that more than 31,000 have already fled their homes, either to government or Kurdish areas, or deeper into the besieged enclave. The fighting has also intensified the rebel shelling of government-held areas in Aleppo. The state broadcaster al-Ikhbariya said "precise operations" by government and allied troops aim to rout out "terrorists," which is how the government refers to all armed opposition groups. The sound of war prevailed in the city early Saturday. Warplanes made several runs overhead, drawing what appeared to be rebel machine gun fire toward the aircraft. The Syrian Civil Defense in eastern Aleppo said six people were killed in bombings of the central al-Shaar neighborhood. Opposition news agency Thiqa also put the death toll at six. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the death toll at three, adding it was likely to rise. In government-held Aleppo, rebel shelling killed five people, according to the state news agency SANA. To the south of the city, government cannons could be heard firing toward rebel-held areas. Residents in eastern Aleppo also reported intense shelling in al-Sukkari neighborhood on the southern edge of the enclave, where many of the newly displaced have sought refuge. "The noose is tightening quickly," said Mohammed Abu Jaafar, a medical official in besieged eastern Aleppo. "Our resources are also running low and beginning to disappear." The bombings Saturday came hours after government troops made new advances on eastern parts of the enclave, including in Tariq al-Bab and al-Khaterji districts. State media reported that government and allied troops have moved in on new neighborhoods, pushing one kilometer (0.6 mile) deeper into the enclave from the far east. The new advances tighten the government's grip on the enclave and reduce the territory the rebels hold by more than half, according to the Observatory. The new advances also secure the airport road east of Aleppo, leading to the city's international airport and a military airbase. The pan-Arab Mayadeen TV station said intense bombing in eastern Aleppo was designed to ensure rebels have been cleared from the airport road. Moscow, a main backer of the Syrian government, says its warplanes haven't bombed Aleppo since Oct. 18. But the Russian military has helped fend off rebel attempts to break the siege of the city. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Moscow is ready to hold quick talks with the U.S. "'to ensure the withdrawal of all rebels without exception from eastern Aleppo, ensure humanitarian supplies to the city residents and the restoration of normal life in eastern Aleppo."

Briefing by Stephane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights - Syria - Sudan - Democratic Republic of the Congo - Zika - U.N.E.S.C.O. - Contributions SYRIA The United Nations remains deeply alarmed about the humanitarian impact of hostilities in and around the de-escalation zone in the north-west part of the country, which has resulted in hundreds of deaths and injuries in just over two months, as well as repeated attacks on civilian infrastructure and an increased level of displacement. Hostilities, including air strikes, artillery shelling and clashes, are largely concentrated in areas controlled by non-State armed groups in Idlib, but also in Government-controlled areas. An estimated 3 million civilians, among them 1 million children, are in imminent danger due to the violence. Since May, 330,000 women, children and men have fled their homes. Most have sought safety in overcrowded areas where services are overstretched. Despite ongoing hostilities and limited access, the humanitarian response by the UN and partner organisations is continuing. Critical life-saving food, protection, nutrition, shelter, education and clean water is being provided to hundreds of thousands of civilians in the north-west. Every month, nearly 1 million people across the north-west receive food baskets. The deployment of mobile healthcare units has been fast-tracked to provide services in areas where most of the newly-displaced are settling. SUDAN Our colleagues in Sudan tell us that the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN Children’s Fund, UNICEF, are supplying medicine, nutrition supplies and trauma kits to the State Ministry of Health in East Darfur region. This is in response to a serious shortage of medicine and health supplies in that area. WHO has also provided health kits to some of its partners in North Darfur to help 150,000 patients over the next three months. WHO is helping the State Ministry of Health in running the Kebkabiya rural hospital and will support four additional facilities in El Fasher and Kutum localities until the end of September. Sudan is facing shortages of medicine and health supplies due to the ongoing economic crisis which has been exacerbated by the current political situation. The Humanitarian Response Plan for Sudan, which is calling for $1.1 billion, is only 29 per cent funded. DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO The World Food Programme (WFP) announced that it is scaling up its relief operation for conflict-displaced people in the northeast Democratic Republic of the Congo.  The renewed inter-ethnic violence has forced tens of thousands or more from their homes and increased the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance. The DRC is the world’s second largest hunger crisis after Yemen, according to the World Food Programme, with 13 million people food insecure, 5 million of whom are malnourished children. In Ebola-afflicted Ituri province, where the spike in clashes between ethnic groups has claimed at least 160 lives in recent weeks, the World Food Programme intends to triple life-saving food and cash assistance to 300,000 internally displaced people. The organization is planning to assist 5.2 million Congolese this year alone. —————- UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said the Iran nuclear deal was “a major milestone in multilateral diplomacy,” and serves a “very important purpose both in term of regional stability and in terms of non-proliferation, and we encourage the parties to preserve it.” In response to questions by reporters today (02 Jul), Dujarric said that “the IAEA is very much in the lead on dealing with the issue of uranium and verification.” He said the Secretary-General continues to “feel that everything should be done by all parties to preserve the JCPOA.” According to reports on Monday, Iran had surpassed the limits on its low enriched uranium stockpile set in the nuclear agreement reached in 2015 known as the JCPOA. The UN nuclear watchdog (IAEA) had also verified that Iran’s total enriched uranium stockpile exceeded 300kg of UF6 enriched up to 3.67% U-235, or the equivalent in different chemical forms. The JCPOA was reached in 2015 between Iran, the European Union, China, France, Russia, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States over Iran’s nuclear programme. The United States has since withdrawn from the agreement. Highlights:
