From displacement to another, a young man tells the tragic situation he lives in a destroyed house in rural Idlib
The people who have been displaced to Idlib are living catastrophic humanitarian conditions, in light of the deteriorating economic situation and the widespread unemployment, as well as their repeated displacement within their displacement areas.
The young man (A.H) from al-Nashabiyah town in Rif Dimashq, is one of the so many examples, he went out alone leaving his family there; as they preferred to stay in their town after regime’s siege of the area there, which resulted in displacing those who wanted to get out to the “de-escalate” the area.
(A.H) says in his testimony to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: “we, the passengers of the displacement buses, were humiliated, insulted, and thrown with stones and shoes as we passed through the regime-loyal villages and towns until we reached factions’ controlled areas in the northern countryside of Hama.
I lived there for nearly a week then I went to towns of Jabal al-Zawiyah looking for a house to shelter me, it was my first displacement after the displacement from Rif Dimashq to Kafruma town in Idlib countryside, and I stayed there until the beginning of the escalation and displacement of people from the town.”
He added: “Then I moved to Kafr Takharim town in the northern countryside of Idlib 6 months ago, live I now in a house partially destroyed by the shelling, I am very poor as unemployment spread here in Idlib province, and I have not been able to buy heating materials, where I live on donations from here and there that come from my friends, relatives, and acquaintances.”
The regime forces had displaced thousands of people from people of Rif Dimashq, Homs, Hama, and Aleppo to the “de-escalation” area, then the armed factions exploited their poor situation and put them in battles they have got nothing to do with, in light of working to make a demographic change in the Syrian north to serve the interests of the Syrian regime and regional states.
