Comments: On 20 January 2022, an attack by ISg's on Sina'a prison in Al-Hasakeh city resulted in rapidly escalating hostilities with gunfire and explosions reported from the area. Civilian casualties were reported, and up to 75,000 people (15,000 families) were forced to move out from the neighbourhoods or between houses where the main hostilities and fighting took place. Most of the displaced people have sought safety with family and friends in Al Hasakeh city and its surrounding neighbourhoods, while others have been hosted at seven temporary shelters. The pre-crises conditions in the affected neighbourhoods and host communities were already critical, with low resilience among the population to withstand any additional shocks. The harsh winter conditions exacerbated by the lack of electricity, fuel and transportation, combined with economic crises that have sent food and basic items prices sky-rocketing, impact from COVID-19 had already depleted the coping capacities among the host communities. Families depending on daily labour for their livelihoods lost their income due to the lockdown and curfews not only in Al-Hasakeh city but also in the governorate at large. While the lockdown has been lifted, there is still a partial curfew in effect and movements are strictly controlled.
