fighting in southern Syria
Air strikes and ground fighting in southern Syria have forced at least 45,000 people to flee, the United Nations has said, the largest displacement in the area so far.

Backed by Russia, Syrian government forces have ramped up air strikes and ground attacks on terrorist/rebel positions in the south, particularly its main province of Daraa.

"Our estimates are 45,000, maybe even higher," said Linda Tom, spokeswoman for the UN humanitarian coordination office (OCHA) in Syria.
