Children Still Victimized in Hasaka Camp
Several other children were killed in al-Houl camp occupied by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Southern Hasaka.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on Friday that 11 children have recently been killed in al-Houl camp for an acute lack of medicine, foodstuff and hygiene possibilities.
It added that at least 218 children have been killed in the camp since last December.
The SOHR had reported in March that 71,000 people are residing in the camp.
Meantime, field sources reported that civilians in the camp held protest rallies against the SDF for hard living conditions in al-Houl, adding that the US-backed forces fired at the protestors.
Also, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced in March that 73 Syrian refugees had died in al-Houl camp in the past few months, adding that two third of them are children.
It said about 23,000 people, mainly women and children fleeing hostilities in rural areas of neighboring Deir Ezzur, had reached the camp over that period.
Displaced Syrian people sheltering in al-Houl camp earlier staged massive rallies over the death of tens of children.
Field sources from Hasaka province reported that the rallies were held to protest at SDF’s incapability to supply the needs of the displaced community sheltered in the camp.
The camp population is suffering lack of basic needs and commodities, hygiene and cold, the locals said.
