    On 26 December 2018, exceptionally heavy rainfall caused severe flash flooding in Idleb and Aleppo governorates in north-west Syria. This area has a high proportion of displaced people and concentration of camps and sites, making it a region with a notably large vulnerable population. Hundreds of tents were reportedly swept away and concrete houses in camps collapsed. As a result of the flooding, thousands of people have been impacted

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected damage to infrastructure and roads in the city of Ar Raqqa, Syrian Arab Republic and is derived from a full UNOSAT analysis of damage to Ar Raqqa in 2017. Using satellite imagery acquired 21 October 2017, UNITAR - UNOSAT identified 5 destroyed bridges, 74 damaged road segments and 94 visible impact craters affecting roads. Approximately 159 structures corresponding to educational facilities, and 26 structures likely related to health facilities are also affected. UNOSAT analysis shows that 8 water towers are completely destroyed and there is damage to one electric substation and a sewage treatment facility. Note that sources of infrastructure data include various open source datasets which are likely incomplete, as well as visual review of satellite imagery by UNOSAT for certain features like water towers.

  • This map illustrates the extent of the snow cover caused by the storm "Huda" that moved through the Middle East region striking Lebanon, Jordan, and the West Bank from about 7-12 January. This analysis was based on satellite imagery collected by the MODIS sensor on the NASA Terra satellite on 12 January 2015. As seen in the imagery the snow has covered a very extensive part of the Lebanon and Syria. Due to cloud cover present on the imagery an extensive portion of the area of interest could not be analysed. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of displaced person settlements in the Daraa and Quneitra Governorates, Syria. Using satellite imagery collected between 3 November 2016 and 7 June 2017, covering an analyzed area of 2,513 sq km (251,362 ha), UNOSAT identified 766 locations where possible displaced persons shelters are visible. Approximately a total of 5,516 shelter structures are estimated to be within the 777 ha of settlement areas. Due to the characteristics of the possible IDP settlements in the area, being the majority of them scattered structures in agricultural fields, the number of possible IDP shelters might have been overestimated. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected damage in the city of Douma, in Eastern Ghouta Area, Syrian Arab Republic. Using satellite imagery collected 2 March 2018 and comparing with imagery acquired 23 February 2018, UNITAR - UNOSAT conducted a Rapid Damage Assessment, over a total area of 17.1 square kilometers, to provide an overview of areas of recent damage. The area analyzed was divided in cells and each cell was assessed searching for presence of damage. Our analysis shows that 17% of the cells were affected by major new damage, with presence of buildings completely destroyed or severely damaged between 23 February 2018 and 2 March 2018. In addition 22% of the cells showed signs of minor new damage, with visible impact craters, debris or moderately damaged structures.

    Idleb governorate and the surrounding opposition-held areas of western Aleppo and north-western Hama governorates* host one of the largest IDP populations in Syria. Since late 2017, following an escalation of violence in north-western and southern Syria, the region has witnessed the further arrival of a substantial number of IDPs. Large cross-line displacements from Eastern Ghouta, northern Homs and southern Hama, as well as Da'ra and Quneitra governorates, beginning in March 2018, have led to a significant increase of the IDP population in the region and to a growing strain on resources and services in the region. While humanitarian assistance is reaching both IDP and resident populations, major gaps remain. In order to address such gaps, REACH has conducted a needs assessment to inform humanitarian actors of IDP and resident populations' priority needs and to address critical information gaps on the humanitarian conditions of IDPs and residents living in communities in the region. This data set provides the findings from this assessment. Findings presented in this data set are based on data collected by REACH as part of a needs assessment focused on IDP and resident populations living in communities of Idleb governorate and surrounding areas. Data was collected in 362 communities across 30 sub-districts between 12 and 20 August 2018. Data was collected at the community level, with enumerators interviewing between 2 and 7 key informants (KIs) per community and with KIs selected based on their knowledge of IDP and resident populations in the community and sector-specific expertise. Communities were assessed based on available data on total populations, focusing on those reported to have large IDP and resident populations and those that have received a high number of IDP arrivals in the two months prior to the start of data collection. Collected primary data was further triangulated through available secondary sources.

  • This map illustrates shelters in the area of the Rukban border crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian border. Using satellite images collected by the WorldView-03 satellite on 23 June 2018 and the GaoFen-2 satellite on 24 June 2018, UNOSAT located 11,702 probable shelters along the Jordanian side of the border, 25 kilometers southwest of the Al Waleed crossing. This is a 12 percent increase in apparent shelters visible compared to the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 16 January 2018. Due to the small size and the irregularity of the shelters it is likely that some shelters may have been missed in this analysis, or some shelters were included erroneously. Due to the scale of this map and the lack of suitable border information at this scale, the border in this map has been excluded. This map is intended for field support and local authorities should be consulted for boundary information. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
