Manbij’s looming humanitarian crisis: many people locked down as regime, Turkish-backed factions and Manbij military council close all crossings

Reliable sources have informed SOHR that a large number of civilians are suffering from inhumane situation after being locked down in controlled areas of Manbij Military Council, regime forces and Turkish-backed factions which all closed their crossings for civilians in Manbij area and countryside, north-east of Aleppo.

SOHR sources have confirmed that the crossings of Awn Al-Dadat, Al-Taiyah and others are still open for commercial traffic only, where oil trucks and tankers carrying fuel and gasoline are allowed to cross.

At the same time, these crossings prevent civilians from crossing leaving them staying in the open for days.

The civilians were also prevented from entering the bodies of their relative in order to be buried in their hometown, which forced them to bury the dead in the place were they have been locked down. Meanwhile, all powers turned a blind eye to the civilians’ appeals, sources added.
