Syrian Arab Republic: Daily Press Briefing by the Office of the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, 6 December 2018 - Syria

Source: UN Department of Public Information Country: Syrian Arab Republic
(excerpt) Syria We remain deeply concerned by continuing reports of injury and displacement in Idlib Governorate in northwest Syria, following ongoing hostilities and shelling in the area. Yesterday, shelling reportedly continued on several areas in southern Idlib, reportedly injuring civilians in Khan Shaykhun and temporarily displacing many people. Many of the newly-displaced people are reportedly staying in the open without adequate shelter. While initial food assistance and non-food distributions by local organizations and local councils are [reported] to have started, many people reportedly remain in need of emergency food and shelter. The United Nations continues to reiterate that a full-scale escalation of hostilities in the area must be averted at all costs, and that failure to do so will bring about humanitarian suffering at a scale not yet seen in this conflict.
