South Sudan

Targeted violence against aid workers has escalated in the past two weeks. On 25 March, seven aid workers from South Sudan and Kenya were killed in a road ambush while travelling from Juba, the capital, to Pibor in Jonglei. This comes after two IOM staff were killed and three injured in a road ambush in Yirol county in Lakes on 14 March, which led to three humanitarian organisations engaged in cholera response in the area suspending their activities on 23 March. In total, 24 humanitarian workers were killed in South Sudan in 2016, up from 15 in 2015.

Chad

In Lac region, Fouli, high malnutrition rates have been reported in some displacement sites along Liwa-Daboua road. GAM is at 19,6%, including 4.4% SAM, underlining a deterioration since December 2016.
In areas south of Bol, 40,000 people, including returnees, face a severe lack of assistance. The remoteness of the areas, which include islands, challenges humanitarian access and the provision of protection, WASH, shelter, health and education assistance. Resumption of military operations in Lac region since February has raised concerns about more limited humanitarian access across Lac region.

Iraq

A severe spike in civilian casualties has occurred in west Mosul. There are disputed accounts of high-casualty blasts, with fatality numbers between 160-240. It is unclear whether the cause of the blasts was IS-made booby traps, a US-led airstrike, or a combination of the two. The spike comes among reports of deteriorating humanitarian conditions in west Mosul, including lack of access to food, water, and medicines. Some 600,000 people are thought to be living in west Mosul, including 400,000 in the densely populated old city.
