Previous assessments carried out by REACH in eastern Aleppo emphasised that it had been under the threat of being besieged since mid-June 20143. Whilst this is still the case, Aleppo is now facing another threat from a third-party armed group advancing from the east of the governorate towards the city. Those threats could potentially lead to a complete blockade on eastern Aleppo city which would aggravate an already critical humanitarian situation for the city’s remaining population. Three access roads to eastern Aleppo city and only one supply road for humanitarian aid delivery are currently open, but exposed to fighting and snipers. Most of these roads are located to the south, as northern neighbourhoods of eastern Aleppo city have been surrounded by regime forces since mid-June 2014, limiting access from northern roads. This urban profile presents an analysis of data collected by REACH enumerators between 20 and 28 August 2014 in eastern Aleppo City. The findings from this assessment highlight sector-specific humanitarian needs and gaps, specifically relating to food, health and water, to inform the relief response for affected populations in six neighbourhoods. This assessment does not aim to provide detailed programmatic information; it is designed to share with a broad audience a concise overview of the current situation in this area and to guide further assessments. This assessment forms part of a broader assessment conducted by REACH and covering different cities affected by the crisis in northern Syria, including eastern Aleppo, Al Hasakeh, Ar-Raqqa, Deir ez-Zor, and Qamishli. For these cities, REACH regularly releases Urban Area Humanitarian Profiles and data Factsheets on June, July, and August 2014.
