Attack on aid workers and relief facilities not only affected the access to people in need, but also had a negative impact on the access of aid workers and their ability to provide essential services to those in need, the report stated.

The UN Office for Humanitarian Affairs has emphasized any repeat of previous insecurity and violence will very likely worsen the humanitarian situation for the 6.3 million people in need of humanitarian assistance in 2019.

The organization added that already, almost two-thirds of the population live in areas directly affected by conflict, routinely exposing them to human rights violations including the deliberate targeting of civilian infrastructure, such as schools and health facilities and sexual and gender-based violence.
