1,600 Households Flee Regime & Russia Bombing on Jisr Al-Shughour & Rural Hama in 24 Hours
More civilians are being displaced from their homes in northwestern Syria as the Russian and Assad regime forces continue to relentlessly bomb the region. More than 1,600 households fled their homes in Jisr Al-Shughour and western rural Hama in the past 24 hours alone.
The Emergency Response Coordinators Team in Syria said that civilians are flocking to relatively safer areas in northwestern Syria to escape the Assad regime and Russian bombing campaign.
The Team pointed out that the figure has brought to 1,018,529 the number of people who fled their homes in the period between November 2019 and February 27, 2020.
The Team called on humanitarian organizations to take urgent action and step up the humanitarian operations in the region in order to meet the needs of the thousands fleeing their homes in Idlib and western rural Hama.
Southern and eastern rural Idlib as well as western rural Aleppo have been subjected to ferocious onslaught by the Assad regime forces and their allied militias with Russian aerial support. The assault has killed and wounded thousands of civilians and displaced hundreds of thousands more from their homes. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
