STORYLINE:

The United Nations (UN) Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said that to date, 135, 500 people have been displaced since the fighting began in Mosul, Iraq.

Spokesperson Jens Laerke told reporters today (10 Jan) that “on the second of January some 4, 000 people were displaced on that day alone from eastern Mosul city. That is one of the largest daily movements of people since the beginning of the crisis which started on the 17th of October”.

Since 3 January, displacement numbers average 1, 000 people a day. Newly displaced are moving to the east of the city where there are camps installed by the government and UN humanitarian partners taking in arrivals and providing humanitarian assistance as well as shelter.

There are serious concerns on the deteriorating humanitarian situation in western Mosul city and the corridor to Tel Afar, since the military encircling has led almost no commercial goods entering. There is no humanitarian access to these ISIL controlled areas.

Larke said that ”as of the 8th January contributions to the Mosul flash appeal have reached 273 million USD which represents over 96 per cent of the required amount. So with these incoming contributions partners continue to scale up the efforts to respond to the crisis."
