New sui*cide | Young girl in her 20s ends her life in Idlib City

Idlib province: A 20 year-old girl committed suicide inside her house in Idlib City within HTS-held areas.

According to reliable SOHR sources, she suicided due to psychological pressures she sustained and harsh living conditions.

On February 9, a nurse working in Jisr Al-Shughour hospital in the western countryside of Idlib killed herself over an uncompleted love story. The nurse consumed a “rice tablet” (tablets of Aluminum Phosphide which is readily available as a fumigant for stored cereal grains), while doctors failed to rescue her.

Accordingly, the number of suicide cases in HTS-held areas since early 2024, has increased to five civilians: three children and two women, where they killed themselves over different reasons, mainly the dreadful living conditions, deteriorating social situation and psychological disorders and stress.
