Tragic situation in camps in the Syrian north after the disaster of rainstorms that flooded and uprooted thousands of tents there more than 3 years ago

The camps at the border with Iskenderun in the northern sector of Idlib countryside continue to witness tragic and catastrophic situation in various aspects of life, in particular, the clashes that have taken place over the past few days between Hayyaat Tahrir and others of al-Lataminah area, which spread panic among the civilians who are looking for a life there, and then, the bad weather came to the area in the past 2 days to increase the mud within the camps and make things even worse, where the Syrian Observatory monitored that several primitive tents sunk within al-Karama camp north of Idlib, due to bad weather and heavy rains all night long, and the Syrian Observatory published on the 7th of February 2019 that the humanitarian situation in the displacement camps in Idlib Province continues to witness a deteriorating and worsening humanitarian situation, especially with the weather conditions in the area of low temperatures, heavy rains, and the accompanied storms, where the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored that sink of several tents within al-Karama camp at the border with Iskenderun in the northern sector of Idlib countryside, due to the heavy rains in the area during last night, and the suffering of the displaced people was not confined to the uprooting and sinking of tents that housed them, where the humanitarian situation continues to worsen in terms of lack of medical and food aid, and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored since late 2018, the worsening of humanitarian and living conditions in camps of the Syrian north, as a result of the rainstorm that uprooted thousands of tents and displaced thousands of families, and at the same time the international organizations are doing nothing and provide no relief or humanitarian assistance, due to which the situation of the families who displaced again after their first displacement has become more tragic and catastrophic, where the Syrian Observatory published on the 27th of December 2019 that most of the border camps with Iskenderun and the internal camps scattered on the outskirts of Idlib; are still witnessing increasingly tragic conditions due to the continued bad weather conditions and the heavy rains in the area, which caused the flood of tents that shelter the displaced people, also many of tents were destroyed, which led the people who had displaced to these camps to displace again to their acquaintances and relatives in the villages and towns around these camps, while the relief and service parties are just watching and no nothing to help in this disaster, which the Syrians are living, those who fled the war and the destruction that that was caused to their property, and stayed out on the open in primitive tents.
