Switzerland: UN estimates 45,000 displaced in Daraa

At least 45,000 people have been «internally displaced» due to ongoing fighting between militants and government forces in the southern Syrian province of Daraa, the United Nations said in Geneva on Tuesday. Jens Laerke of the United Nations Office of Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) stated that the fighting has affected an estimated 750,000 people in the area. The majority of those... Еще displaced have reportedly fled from the eastern parts of Daraa towards the country's southern border with Jordan. The number of displaced people, however, «could more than double as the violence escalates,» Bettina Luescher from the World Food Programme (WFP) warned.
