The Early Response Coordinators Team of the Office for Documentation and Support has published a report about the hundreds of thousands of people who have been forcibly displaced to Idlib province following military attacks by the Assad forces and Iranian terrorist militias with Russian air support in different parts of Syria.
According to the report, no fewer than 12,317 families have been forcibly displaced to Idlib province. It indicated that 3,380 families were displaced from Damascus and its suburbs, 2,156 from Aleppo, 1,180 from east of al-Hijaz railroad in Hama and Idlib provinces, 890 from the northern rural Homs, 1,173 from eastern Syria, 660 from Hama, and 133 families from the coastal areas.
Director of the team, Mohammed al-Shami, said that the suffering of the displaced people worsened after humanitarian organizations scaled down their activities in the province. He added that the displaced households are in dire need for aid, such as a monthly food program and a sufficient supply of food baskets.
Al-Shami called for increasing efforts in the area of educational activities and incorporating all students in schools and eliminating child labor among the displaced people. He also pointed to the need to incorporate people with expertise into the labor market to turn them from consumers to producers in society.
Idlib province has received thousands of families from around Syria as a result of mass forced displacement by the Assad regime over the past six months. The Syrian Coalition said that the displacement constituted war crimes, calling for referring Syria to the International Criminal Court and holding all war criminals accountable.
The Coalition also urged support for the displaced people in Idlib and preventing the Assad regime and Russia from launching any air strikes against the province. It warned of a humanitarian disaster, especially as the province is overcrowded with displaced people. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department + Baladi News)
