Province du Sud-Kivu

? L?action humanitaire au Sud-Kivu est actuellement fortement handicapee par la degradation du reseau routier et l?insecurite dans les zones evacuees par les elements de l?armee nationale en route vers les centres de formation. Les attaques des coupeurs de route se multiplient sur certains axes du Territoire de Shabunda et l?axe Kilembwe (Shabunda) ? Salamabila (Maniema). Au moins huit incidents securitaires contre les acteurs humanitaires ont ete enregistres sur ce dernier axe au courant du mois de mai. Des elements des Forces democratiques de liberation du Rwanda sont designes comme presumes auteurs de ces embuscades. De meme, sur la route Bukavu ? Kamituga, plusieurs cas d?embuscades sont signales. Par contre, la route Matili ? Penekusu (Shabunda) devrait etre accessible aux vehicules des le mois d?octobre prochain. Grace a un financement du Fonds commun (Pooled Fund), l?ONG Agence d?Achat de Performance (AAP) est entre dans la deuxieme phase de la rehabilitation de cette route.

? Dans le cadre du projet de collecte des donnees et cartographie sur les violences basees sur le genre (GBV/STAREC), le Fonds des Nations Unies pour la population (UNFPA), avec son partenaire Arche d?Alliance (ARAL), a organise le 6 juin dernier, un atelier de formation des acteurs de terrain sur l?utilisation des outils de collecte des donnees SGBV. 43 intervenants ont pris part a cette formation qui a ete animee par le ministere provincial ayant le genre dans ses attributions, la Commission provinciale de lutte contre les violences sexuelles (CPLVS) et d?autres intervenants dans les domaines medical et judiciaire.

? Pour lutter contre le cholera au Sud-Kivu, l?ONG Oxfam vient de fournir 1 000 litres de chlore liquide et un stock de contingence a l?aire de sante de Kiliba (zone de sante Ruzizi), afin de lui permettre d?organiser une riposte efficace face aux cas de cholera. Pour sa part, l?ONG Solidarites International s?installe au Sud-Kivu, a travers un projet d?urgence de lutte contre le cholera et les maladies hydriques dans le Territoire de Fizi. Le projet est finance par le Service d?aide humanitaire de la Commission europeenne (ECHO) et prevoit la desinfection des foyers infectes, l?organisation de points de chloration, la construction et rehabilitation de 15 points d?eau a Baraka.

May Overview

May witnessed the highest number of Palestinians injured (319) during demonstrations and clashes in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) since March 2010. The large majority of these injuries took place within the context of demonstrations commemorating the 63 rd anniversary of what Palestinians refer to as An Nakba (the catastrophe) of 1948, during which the majority of the Palestinian population became refugees. A concern raised in the context of other demonstrations, particularly those held in the village of An Nabi Salih (Ramallah), in protest of settlement expansion, is that the purpose behind the use of force (and its nature and proportion) is to discourage people from exercising their right to free expression and peaceful assembly.

Some 30 percent of this month?s injuries were children.
This has occurred in the context of a worrying increase in the number of child casualties, displacement and incidents leading to disruptions in education since the beginning of this year. Thus far in 2011, twice as many children have been injured per month, on average, compared to 2010. In addition, over four times as many children have been displaced, due to the demolition of their homes, than were displaced during the first five months of 2010.
