Monthly Summary

Middle East, April 2017

April was marked by changing dynamics in the in- ternal displacement situations in both Syria and Iraq. Displacement in Syria’s Al-Raqqa governorate surged, with over 66,000 people displaced during the month due to the intensification of fighting around Tabqqa, close to Al-Raqqa city. In Iraq, heavy fighting continued in west Mosul, inducing large-scale displacement to camps in the north and west of the city.
