REFUGEES

Konflikte treiben Zahl der Zwangsvertriebenen auf Rekordhöhe

By Jordi Bou

June 13, 2024 - Laut Vereinten Nationen ist die Zahl der Menschen, die gezwungen sind, ihre Heimat zu verlassen, auf 117 Millionen letztes Jahr gestiegen, wofür die Konflikte in Gebieten wie Gaza, Sudan und Myanmar die Hauptursache sind.

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.
