The breaking of the siege in Aleppo city in late August saw approximately 14,055 IDPs displaced into the countryside of Aleppo. Many of these communities received little to no humanitarian assistance, fleeing from constant aerial bombardments, having being displaced multiple times. Supply routes are still closed, aerial attacks have increased and needs in all sectors are high.
