UNHCR Somalia - Operational Update July 2023

Document Type: Panel de indicadores y hojas informativas
Document Language: English
In July, conflict and insecurity were the main driver of humanitarian needs in Somalia. The security situation in the country remained tense, with Al-Shabab, referred to as the non-state armed group (NSAG), frequently conducting indiscriminate attacks where civilians became innocent victims. In a bid to reclaim territory from the NSAG, Somali security forces and their allies continued military operations, primarily in Hirshabelle and Galmudug states. Although the recent rainfall, efforts of local communities and authorities, and sustained humanitarian assistance have prevented famine for the time being, thousands of Somalis remain vulnerable to climatic shocks. According to the Protection and Returns Monitoring Network (PRMN), which has been tracking internal displacement trends for the past 17 years, 70,000 internal displacements were recorded in July, primarily due to conflict/insecurity and drought, bringing the total number of internal displacements in 2023 to more than 1.4 million.
