Towns and villages of the western sector of Aleppo countryside witnesses ongoing displacement against the backdrop of the escalating military operations by the regime and Russia, the “de-escalation” guarantor, over the recent week.
Syrian regime and Russia follow systematic policy of displacement by stepping up aerial and ground bombardment, in order to force civilians to flee their areas, so that they can unleash a vast ground military operation, as happened in Idlib and Hama.
Reliable sources inform the Syrian Observatory that more than 10,000 families, estimated as nearly 70,000 civilians, were forced to flee the area during the recent week.
It is noteworthy that a large portion of people who displaced over the past week, were of families displaced earlier from Idlib, Hama and other Syrian areas to the western countryside of Aleppo.
Most of the displaced people headed to the north-western countryside of Idlib near the Syrian border with Iskenderun.
Humanitarian catastrophe is deteriorating amid International Community’s inaction towards crimes by the Syrian regime and Russians against civilians in camps and those who are searching for a new safe haven.
Turkey, the other “de-escalation” guarantor, has had enough with mere publicity that polishes it as an actor sympathetic towards the humanitarian catastrophe.
Meanwhile, the Turkish border guard forces “Jandarma” continue to target and kill the Syrians who try to infiltrate into the Turkish territory.
As displacement waves are growing, the number of people displaced from the southern and south-eastern countryside of Idlib and the western countryside of Aleppo during the period between the 1st of December 2019 and today the 22nd of January 2020, rose to nearly 400,000 civilians.
