Ongoing demographic change in Afrin | “White Hands” completes construction of settlement in Jendires district

Aleppo province: As a part of the ongoing efforts to change the demography of Afrin city and the construction of settlements, the Kuwaiti association of the “White Hands” has completed the construction of a residential compound near Kafr Safra village in Jendires district in Afrin countryside, north-west of Aleppo. This settlement consisted of 250 houses with complete infrastructure, a school, a mosque and shops.

The settlement has been built at the foot of Jabal “Hajj Muhammad” after forest trees have been cut down, and the displaced people from Damascus were settled there.

 

On April 24, SOHR activists reported that Al-Sultan Murad faction, led by a militiaman known by his initials as A. A., completed the construction of a residential compound for residents from Homs near Kafrum village in Sharan district in Afrin countryside, north-west of Aleppo. These violations come as part of the ongoing demographic change in the area. The number of houses is approximately 360, with an estimated area of 120 square metres.

According to Syrian Observatory activists, the settlement was built on the foot of a hill planted with forest trees. These trees were completely cut off and sold as fire logs.

Moreover, National Army factions are continuing to prepare for the construction of other settlements in Aghjilah village in Jendires district and Umar village in Sharan district. The factions of the National Army have begun to destroy agricultural land owned by forcibly displaced civilians from Afrin.
