As of 12 February 2017, some 152,448 people were living in displacement while over 9,100 have in the past week returned to areas recently retaken by government forces in eastern Mosul. Food, water and fuel are scarce in western Mosul, leading to negative coping mechanisms. It is highly likely that the humanitarian situation will continue to deteriorate as commercial supply routes remain cut off and stocks cannot be replenished.
