Violence and theft continue to escalate inside the PoCs. Fighting during food distribution is also becoming increasingly common. During the reporting period two trucks which came to unload food in PoC 1 in UN House were confronted by IDPs. The drivers were physically assaulted and the IDPs took the ignition key of one truck. Also at the camp in UN House, five unknown persons entered and ended up in a physical altercation with IDPs. Two men escaped from the PoC and ran away while the other three disappeared somewhere within the PoC.
