13 lug - New aid route allows UN and partners to reach people in need in Raqqa governorate

New aid route allows UN and partners to reach people in need in Raqqa governorateThe UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) said on 11 July that it had completed a first series of humanitarian convoys by road to Qamishli in Syria’s north-eastern Hassakeh governorate. The convoys took place over the last two weeks along a vital route from Aleppo, opening a new link to deliver aid in Raqqa. With the number of people displaced now having passed 190,000 in Raqqa governorate since April, the opening of the road from Aleppo to Menbij and Qamishli is a breakthrough. To date, a total of 22 trucks have been dispatched. UNHCR added that regular deliveries along the route were planned, allowing UN agencies and partners to reach a greater number of the estimated 430,000 people in need in Raqqa governorate.

Intra-Syrian talks reconvene in Geneva

The seventh round of intra-Syrian talks was convened in Geneva on 10 July. Speaking to the press, Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura, noted that the de-escalation process needed to be considered as an interim measure. “Let me underline the word interim, and with a clear understanding that is not going to undermine ultimately the Syrian national unity, territorial integrity”, he said. The Envoy added that while he was not expecting breakthroughs, he stressed the need for incremental progress in the talks.

Secretary-General welcomes the establishment of a de-escalation area in southwest Syria 

Secretary-General António Guterres welcomed on 10 July the announcement by Jordan, Russia and the United States of a de-escalation zone and arrangements to support a ceasefire and delivery of humanitarian assistance in southwest Syria. “This is a significant step towards reducing violence and increasing humanitarian access across Syria, in line with the pursuit of the goal of a comprehensive, nationwide ceasefire, as endorsed by multiple Security Council resolutions”, he stressed. As the United Nations reconvened the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva, the Secretary-General urged all parties to redouble efforts for a political solution to the conflict. He also appealed to all countries to preserve the right for all Syrians to seek asylum and enjoy refugee protection until conditions are conducive for return in safety and dignity.

The conflict has caused extensive damage to Syria’s infrastructure and economy- World Bank study

According to a World Bank study of the economic and social consequences of the Syrian conflict, the cumulative losses in gross domestic product (GDP) have been estimated at $226 billion from 2011 to 2016, about four times the Syrian GDP in 2010.  The study also found that the conflict has inflicted significant damage to the Syrian Arab Republic’s physical capital stock (7 percent housing stock destroyed and 20 percent partially damaged), led to large numbers of casualties and forced displacement (between 400,000 and 470,000 estimated deaths and more than half of Syria’s 2010 population forcibly displaced), while depressing and disrupting economic activity.

Head of chemical weapons investigative panel speaks out against politicized environment

The panel investigating the use of chemical weapons in Syria on 6 July called on the international community to allow it to complete its work in an independent, impartial and professional manner. “We do receive, unfortunately, direct and indirect messages, all the time, from many sides, telling us how to do our work; my message again, to the Council today was, please let us do our work,” Edmond Mulet, the Head of the three-member panel told reporters in New York following a briefing to the Security Council. The Joint Investigative Mechanism, comprising the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the UN, is currently investigating the 4 April 2017 attack on the town of Khan Sheikhoun, in north western Syria.
