UNHCR Somalia - Operational Update June 2023
Dashboards & Factsheets
, Situation Reports / Updates
In June, conflict and insecurity, coupled with the effects of climate change, made the operational environment in Somalia challenging. The security situation in the country remained tense, with reports of armed conflict between Somali security forces and Al-Shabab, referred to as the non-state armed group (NSAG), and attacks on civilians by the NSAG. Although the recent rainfall, efforts of local communities and authorities, and sustained humanitarian assistance have prevented famine for the time being, humanitarian needs remain high. According to the Protection and Returns Monitoring Network (PRMN), which has been tracking internal displacement trends for the past 17 years, 92,000 internal displacements were recorded in June, primarily due to the combined effects of conflict/insecurity and drought, bringing the total number of internal displacements in 2023 to more than 1.3 million.
