Increasing conflicts forces more than 88,000 residents out of home in southern Lebanon: UN report says

The ongoing conflict in southern Lebanon has led to the displacement of over 88,000 residents, as reported by a UN spokesperson on Thursday.

The UN and its partners say they are continuing to provide humanitarian aid to those who have been forced to leave their homes, in addition to supporting the Lebanese government’s relief efforts.

This aid includes provisions such as food, healthcare, financial assistance, educational support, and legal protection services for displaced families, as well as assistance in maintaining water and sanitation systems.

According to UN officials, the ability to provide humanitarian assistance and support to these people is very limited due to security, access and funding issues.

At least 39 civilians have reportedly been killed in southern Lebanon in the last four months, according to the UN Human Rights Office. Tension has flared along the border between Lebanon and Israel amid intermittent exchanges of fire between Israeli forces and Hezbollah, in the deadliest fighting since the two sides fought a full-scale war in 2006.
