Fighting along the northern stretch of the Pakistan-Afghanistan border has intensified over the past eight months. Tens of thousands of civilians have been forced to leave the conflict zones to seek refuge in safer places, and the number of people wounded by the fighting has increased. The ICRC has stepped up its surgical and physical rehabilitation activities, particularly in Peshawar, North West Frontier Province.
