Humanitarian crisis | Displaced civilians in Tel Tamr schools suffer from deteriorating situation, amid humanitarian organizations’ inaction
Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that civilians who have been displaced from Ras al-Ain city (Sere Kaniye) to Tel Tamr in the northern countryside of al-Hasakah are suffering from dire living conditions, after they were forced to displace from their homes due to the “Peace Spring” operation, which Turkish forces and their proxy factions launched in late 2019.
Some of the displaced families are living inside Tel Tamr schools as they have no other place to stay in, while neither the Autonomous Administration nor humanitarian and international organizations do care less about them.
These helpless families are distributed in several schools, such as Musab bin Omair, Saif al-Dawla and Naif al-Salem in Tel Tamr in the northern countryside of al-Hasakah, where they are struggling with shortage in water, furniture, sheets, blankets and many other basic essentials. In addition, the families suffer from lack of health care, which is supposed to be provided by health committees of the Autonomous Administration and international organizations.
In testimonies to SOHR activists, some of these displaced residents complained of not receiving any food or medical aid, and said that the relevant bodies and officials seem indifferent to their dire situation. Moreover, while officials of the “Autonomous Administration” refused to comment about the reason behind the deliberate ignoring to the displaced civilians in the schools of Tel Tamr or their failure to help these displaced families.
SOHR activists have monitored the damage of large quantities of rice of an estimated six tons, which were stored in the Autonomous Administration’s warehouses and were not distributed to the residents for unknown reasons, at a time when displaced families have been struggling with disastrous situation inside Tel Tamr schools in the northern countryside of al-Hasakah.
