The ongoing displacement from the Eastern Ghouta raises to 140,000 the number of people came out from it to the regime’s controlled areas, those who stayed in the latter’s controlled areas and those who headed to the Syrian North

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored the continuation of getting the citizens and the fighters and their families on the buses, from the enclave controlled by Al-Rahman Corps, in the south-west of the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus, where the buses are departing one after another to the place specified for gathering buses at the outskirts of Arbin city, waiting for completing the convoy which is believed to include about 50 buses which will depart to the Syrian North after they are completed, and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored the displacement of about 800 citizens from Douma city, through Al-Wafideen Camp since today morning, Sunday the 25th of March 2018.

The continuation of the displacement of citizens from the Eastern Ghouta, raised the number of people displaced to the regime’s controlled areas, the people stayed in the Eastern Ghouta within the areas the regime forces advanced into, and the people left to the Syrian North from Harasta city and the controlled areas of Al-Rahman Corps and Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham, where it has increased to about 140 thousand people of who left through to the destinations mentioned above since Thursday the 15th of March 2018, and in the details documented by the SOHR; the number of people left through crossings towards the regime’s controlled areas reached more than 97 thousand citizens, while 37 thousand citizens at least stayed in the towns of Kafr Batna, Ein Tarma and Saqba which the regime forces controlled, while about 6000 people have left towards the Syrian North from Harasta city which used to be controlled by Ahrar Al-Sham Islamic movement, and the areas of Jobar, Arbin and Zamalka controlled by Al-Rahman Corps.

And with the displacement of tens of thousands of citizens from the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus, in conjunction with killing and injuring more than 7000 citizens in 34 successive days by the regime forces and Russia by the aerial, rocket and artillery strikes, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights call on the residents of the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus, to stay in their cities and towns, on condition that the UN completely secure their stay, and provide guarantees that prevent the implementation of the Turkish-Russian agreement, leads to a simultaneous demographic change in both Eastern Ghouta of Damascus and Afrin, that the Russian occupation forces have to secure the area from ​mines and planted and unexploded bombs, to ensure the safety of the people in order to preserve their lives and for fear of the death of more citizens in the Eastern Ghouta which witnessed killing in all forms from killing by shells until the death due to starvation and disease.
