First incident of its kind in regime-controlled areas | Young lady dies of hypothermia in Al-Qerdaha
A young lady called “Batoul Madin Matar” from Al-Jubayrah village in Al-Qerdaha countryside on the Syrian coastline, the hometown of the Syrian regime’s president Bashar Al-Assad, died of hypothermia which caused a heart attack, according to coroners.
It is worth noting that this is the first incident of its kind in regime-controlled areas in light of the current spell of harsh weather across Syria. This also coincides with almost-complete lack and unaffordable prices of fuel and other materials used for heating and power outages for long hours everyday in areas under the control of the Syrian regime, while the ruling class clinging only to power, disregarding the sufferings of the Syrian people.
