Activists said that the mass exodus of civilians in northwestern Syria is continuing as Russia, the Assad regime, and the Iranian militias have pressed on with the onslaught on Idlib and rural Aleppo.
The Emergency Response Coordinators Team in Syria on Monday said that at least 177,078 households, or 1,009,346 people, have been displaced from their homes since early November 2019. The figure included 249,243 women and 545,141 children.
The Team pointed out that 844,763 people were internally displaced in northwestern Syria, while 1,022,216 people are living in IDP camps. It indicated that more than three million people need urgent humanitarian aid.
Large parts of Idlib province and rural Aleppo provinces have been subjected to ferocious bombing campaign by the Russian air force and the Assad regime forces, resulting in the death of tens of civilians and the displacement of hundreds of thousands from their homes as well as the destruction of tens of vital facilities such as public markets, schools, mosques and medical centers.
