عدد قياسي من النازحين قسراً في العام 2023

By Jordi Bou

June 13, 2024 - تقول الأمم المتحدة إن عدد الأشخاص الذين أجبروا على الفرار من منازلهم وصل إلى مستوى قياسي بلغ أكثر من 117 مليون شخص العام الماضي، ويعود السبب في ذلك إلى حد كبير إلى الصراع في أماكن مثل غزة والسودان وميانمار.

This constitutes a rise of 8 per cent or 8.8 million people compared to the end of 2022 and continues a series of year-on-year increases over the last 12 years, the annual report by the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) says.

The conflicts that have driven displacement include the war in Sudan, where more that 9 million people have been internally displaced and another 2 million have fled to neighbouring countries.

In Gaza, Israel’s bombardment and ground campaign have caused around 1.7 million people – nearly 80% of the Palestinian enclave’s population – to become internally displaced, many of them multiple times.

Based on operational data, UNHCR estimates that forced displacement has continued to increase in the first four months of 2024 and by the end of April 2024 is likely to have exceeded 120 million.
