Syria – Humanitarian situation and conflict (ECHO, NGOs, Media)
  • On 23 February, ISIL forces kidnapped about 90 villagers including women and children after seizing the villages of Tal Shamiram and Tal Hermuz in north-east Syria according to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights. The abductions took place when ISIL attacked a number of largely Assyrian Christian villages along the banks of the Khabour river in Al-Hassakeh governorate.

According to local and media reports, on 24 February, Kurdish forces retook control of some of the villages that had come under ISIL attack and continued advancing to secure others.

Humanitarian organizations and local networks are organizing assistance to some 300 displaced families who have mostly sought refuge in local families and churches in Al-Hassakeh and Qamishli.
