Syria - Conflict
In the run-up to the resumption of negotiations between parties to the conflict in Syria, widespread violence, aerial bombings and ground fighting continue in several parts of the country. In the past days, the Government army and associated forces have made significant gains against locations under the control of armed groups (AG). In the north of the coastal governorate of Lattakia, Government forces have re-taken control of a series of villages that had been under AG control since 2013. Ground and air offensives by Government forces also continue against AG locations in Aleppo, especially around Al-Bab along the border with Turkey.
Air raids by Russian forces and the international coalition in Al-Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor under ISIL control have also taken place since the weekend. The city of Homs witnessed violent attacks against a government-run checkpoint killing at least 30 people and wounding over a hundred according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
In southern Syria, Government forces have seized the town of Sheikh Maskin. The town is located some 24 km north of Dar’a city near the highway connecting the capital of Damascus and the Jordanian border. Of serious concern is the situation of more than 110 000 people residing in villages around Sheikh Maskin who have already faced months of fighting and intense air bombardment.
Meanwhile, the delivery of humanitarian assistance to the besieged areas of Madaya, Fouah and Kafraya has been on hold since late last week due to lack of required authorizations. As a result, the work of mobile clinics initially deployed in and around Madaya has stopped and only limited quantities of food and fuel have reached the town of Zabadani. In addition, the situation of approximately 25 000 residents in Madamiyet Elsham and more than 10 000 in Darayya city in the outskirts of Damascus is dire as military pressure on the locations continues and the areas remain out of reach for humanitarian actors.
