the situation in Syria is still critical, with millions
of Syrians displaced and in need of protection
and humanitarian assistance. The potential for
violence remains high, and there is little progress

conflict. Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey, as well as
other host countries in the region such as Egypt
and Iraq, have shown extraordinary solidarity

assistance to meet the growing needs of both the
refugees and their own communities.
