Conflictos llevan el número de personas desplazadas a un máximo récord

By Jordi Bou

June 13, 2024 - Naciones Unidas dice que el número de personas forzadas a huir de sushogares alcanzó una cifra récord de más de 117 millones el año pasado, mayormente debido a conflictos en lugares como Gaza, Sudán y Myanmar

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.
