Severe windstorm uproots many IDPs’ tents, further worsening the humanitarian crisis in Idlib

Syrian Observatory sources have reported that a severe windstorm has struck Idlib province since the early hours of Friday morning, uprooting and destroying a large number of tents in refugee camps in Idlib countryside. Many tents were blown away in Jabal Al-Duwaylah in Kafr Takharim and other camps in the north and west of Idlib. The recent windstorm helped in worsening the inhumane situation of people who have been forced to displace fleeing the Russian and regime brutality.

Since January 15, the start date of the recent military escalation by Russian-led regime forces and allies, SOHR activists have documented the displacement of more than 1,200,000 persons who have been forced to flee their areas in Aleppo, Idlib and Hama.

The original residents  of areas captured recently by the regime are living now in the open, while others just manage to get hold of primitive tents or uninhabitable places in areas on the border with Iskenderun region and Turkish-held areas in the north and north-western countryside of Aleppo like Azaz, Al-Bab, Jarabulus and Afrin.
