Dear everyone,

As always, thank you to the 10 contributors [0] who are helping with this task.
I just uploaded some mapillary photos to help guide mappers what some
of the features look like on the ground.
Links are in the Instruction tab of the task [1].

We are hoping the holy week ceasefire will decrease the military
offensive [2] but IDP situation on the ground is not any way better.
Once again this is not an urgent task nor a formal activation, but we
appreciate any help you can extend.
