Suicide | As living conditions deteriorates, child kills himself in Jarabulus

Reliable sources have told SOHR that a child committed a suicide in Jarabulus city which is under the control of Turkish forces and their proxies in north-eastern Aleppo.

 

According to SOHR sources, the child’s family suffers from dire living conditions which is suggested to be the reason that pushed the child to put a rope around his neck and hang himself.

 

SOHR sources reported earlier that the Syrian regime acknowledged 51 registered deaths by suicide in Syria since the beginning of 2020, as living conditions of the Syrian people have been getting worse in regime-held areas,

 

The total number of suicides included 13 deaths of children under the age of eighteen as well as eight women, with Aleppo in the first place in terms of the number of deaths by suicide. The reasons behind these suicides are confined to poverty and the inhumane situations which the Syrian citizen suffers from.
