A Heavy rain downfall is magnifying the misery for IDPs north of Aleppo, turning IDP camps into muddy swamps.
“Rain seem to surround us from every direction, preventing the water tankers and relief assistance from reaching the camps that are unfit for human habitation and located in the farmlands between olive trees”, Youssif Marei, a camp resident, told SY24.
Marei indicated, “Some tents are leaking due to the rainfall and some were blown away in the strong winds”.
There are currently about 250,000 IDPs residing in the squatter camps on the Turkish border. They have been forcibly displaced by People’s Protection Units (YPG) who, backed by Russian warplanes, had captured their villages in northern rural Aleppo.
