More families arrive in rural Al-Hasakeh fleeing hostilities
More than 710,000 of those living in the area were already internally displaced.
Continuing hostilities in Ras Al-Ain in northeast Syria are forcing more families out of their homes. Many have sought shelter in deserted villages of rural Al-Hasakeh that had been hit by previous escalations in fighting. Their living conditions are dire after they left all their belongings and livelihoods behind.
Around 74,400 people remain displaced following the recent hostilities in northeast Syria that erupted last October. The latest violence compounds an already dire humanitarian situation in the northeast. Before 9 October, more than 710,000 of those living in the area were already internally displaced. Of the three million people living in the area, 1.8 million were already in need of humanitarian assistance, including over 900,000 in acute need.
