Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Syrian refugees: More than 13 million displaced in conflict” – below is their description.

The fighting in Ukraine has dramatically pushed up the number of people displaced around the world.

The UN says that figure has crossed 100 million for the first time, up from 89.3 million at the end of last year.

Syria is suffering the world’s largest displacement crisis.

More than 13 million people have either fled the country or have been displaced within its borders since the war began 11 years ago.

As Al Jazeera’s @Zeina Khodr reports, most live in poverty and without any guarantee of safety.
