“Murek” refugee camp on Iskenderun border: lack of sewers risk spread of infections and diseases amid false claims by organizations
“Murek” refugee camp which is located in Deir Hassan town in north-western Idlib, near the border with Iskenderun region, suffers from inhumane situations. Like many refugee camps in northern Syria, the camp lacks of well-functioning sewers and depends on primitive ones.
At the same time, the camp’s inhabitants of some 1800 families, according to SOHR statistics, are not able to deal with such situations because of the high prices of machineries used for draining these sewers. Meanwhile, relevant organizations have been content with false promises and continue their inaction.
According to SOHR sources, people in the camp fear of the spread of Leishmaniasis as summer approaches, especially since children play around these sewers being not aware how dangerous it is.
We, at the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, call upon relevant organizations to assume their responsibility towards the refugee camps and hurry to stop this deteriorating humanitarian crisis.
