Over-plagued with deadly siege, the Eastern Ghota is still subject to a vicious military regime attack in an attempt to force its people to flee for their life or just die in place. The sufferings in Eastern Ghota have been continuing, unabated for more than five running years, leaving the area bereaved of almost all basic necessities for survival with grave shortage of resources. The Syrian regime is currently making attempts to displace the civilians by wreaking havoc in the area, preventing the entry of basic foodstuffs, and denying medical access for critical cases or even their exit for treatment.

In a series of reports issued by the Information Management Unit (IMU) of the Assistance Coordination Unit (ACU) and through its network of enumerators and in coordination with the Local Council of Rural Damascus Governorate, the 2nd edition of the report ” Siege and Death in the Eastern Ghouta” is issued to sound off warning bells about the hardship situation in Eastern Ghota, much as it is intended to raise the alarm regarding the displacement enforced and the human rights violations committed by the regime. The report at the same time sheds lights on the looming catastrophe before it may occur.


The Information Management Unit (IMU) of the Assistance Coordination is keeping track of the numbers of IDPs regularly, by monitoring the response provided from different providers. It also shares information with all actors working in the Syrian cause in order make the information available at hand to the largest number of humanitarian organizations, by issuing reports periodically. The ACU has issued its first IDPs report on Idleb in January 2018, the total number recorded then was 117,867 IDPs. In view of the fast and steady exaggerating number of the IDPs, with no up to the mark humanitarian response that troops with the minimum needs that IDPs are in want for, the IMU of the Assisatnce Coordination Unit is issuing its second Displacement Report, tracking the places of distribution of 504,709 IDPs, in addition to the response being provided for. The report shows that 27% of the IDPs have not received any humanitarian response, while 28% have received emergency food baskets only.


The Information Management Unit (IMU) of the Assistance Coordination Unit (ACU), through its network of enumerators distributed in the sub-districts of Idleb governorate and in the northern Syria camps tracked the numbers of the IDPs. The data is triangulated with secondary sources of information to assess their basic needs and locate their current places of residence. The number of registered IDPs up to the date of January 7, 2018, stood at 117,876 persons, who took refuge in 198 displacement points. Only 10% of the IDPs were able to reach the Northern camps and distributed within  Atmeh, Al-Karameh, Qah, and Al-Rahmeh clusters in Dana sub-district, and to IDP camp in Salqin sub-district with a number of 11,868 IDPs totaling 1,978 households.


A military campaign is launched against Eastern Ghota aiming to depopulate it. This area was besieged for more than five years which led to the loss of the basic necessities of life and a great deficit in the resources there. Currently, the Syrian Regime aims to forcibly displace the civilians from Eastern Ghota through totally destroying it, prohibiting the entry of basic food items, and not allowing the critical medical conditions to be transported to hospitals for treatment.
The ACU’s Information Management Unit, among a series of reports that predicts the forced displacement that is applied all over Syria, with the cooperation of the Provincial Council of Rural Damascus Governorate has issued this report “The Siege and Death in Eastern Ghota”, the report monitors the human rights violations in this area, sheds the light on the upcoming disaster, and presents a detailed explanation about the urgent needs of the population in this besieged area.



The ACU’s Information Management Unit through its enumerator network and in cooperation with the provincial councils of Ar-Raqqa and Deir-ez-Zour, has prepared a situational report that highlights the human rights violations affecting both governorates, and monitors the urgent needs of the population in the places of their displacement.
Both Deir-ez-Zour and Ar-Raqqa have suffered human rights violations for more than six consecutive years. Civilians were shelled, besieged, forcibly displaced, and at the end detained in displacement camps. Despite the suffering of these governorates, humanitarian operations there were completely stopped and the complete picture of the humanitarian situation there was deliberately ignored from media channels.




The Status of Service Provision in Idleb City report was written upon the request of several stakeholders. The report is considered a pilot project, to be used as a proof of concept for IMU’s new, mixed methods research methodology. The report provides information about the status of service provision in Idleb City, as well as public opinions of these services. Following a feedback process, the IMU will produce a report that assesses services in communities throughout Idleb province.
