Large-scale campaign | Civil police and “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah” attempt to evacuate displaced families from residential compound

Aleppo province: SOHR sources have reported that members of the civil police and the Turkish-backed faction of “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah” launched a large-scale military campaign to evacuate displaced people by force from a residential compound known as “Sorour” near Yahmoul village in the northern countryside of Aleppo, amid a state of panic among the displaced families.


Meanwhile, tens of displaced people inhabiting the compound demonstrated there, demanding the delivery of humanitarian assistance and calling upon the international community and United Nations to take action and protect them from the factions. The demonstrators lifted placards with slogans written on them, which read “we appeal to all countries to help us” and “death rather than humiliation.”


On March 1, Displaced people have went out on on protests in “Soror” residential compound near Yahmol village in northern Aleppo countryside against the Turkish “Afad” organization, and demanded to permit entry of aids to them similar to other areas.


According to reliable SOHR sources, nearly 800 families living in the compound had their houses damaged in Jinderes and other areas in northern Aleppo countryside, due to the catastrophic earthquake that hit Syria on February 6, while the Turkish “Afad” organization besieged the residential compound and prevented entry of organizations and water tanks, and prevented the distribution of relief and medical materials on these families to pressure them to leave the compound.
