Summary

Internally displaced persons (IDPs) continued to arrive at the UN Mission in South Sudan’s protection of civilians (PoC) site in Bentiu, the capital of Unity State at the same pace as the week before though marked variation was noted in their places of origin. While the key push factor continued to be food insecurity, the recent fighting in the southern part of Rubkona County also contributed to the change in trend. A total of 1,621 individuals arrived at the PoC between 14 to 20 November 2015, which is nearly the same as the 1,623 new arrivals that had come in the week before, taking the overall population of the PoC to 127,253 individuals or 33,424 households.
