Eight members of the same family killed or injured as difficult humanitarian conditions continue to worsen in the camps in north-eastern Syria 

SOHR sources say that a tent was burned down inside “Al-Nowruz” camp in the city of Al-Malikia in north-eastern Syria, as a result of the primitive materials and methods used for cooking used by the camp’s residents.

In the meantime, four children were killed and four others were injured, all of the same family, they were displaced from the city of Ras al-Ain, during the Turkish military operation “Peace Spring”.

Displaced persons in the camps, who have fled their areas due to the Turkish military operation “Peace Spring” in north-eastern Syria, are living in a very difficult humanitarian conditions without any intervention or assistance by international organizations and the United Nations in particular.

“Washukani” camp in rural Al-Hasakeh is perhaps the clearest example of the humanitarian disaster experienced by the displaced persons. Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that the United Nations has never entered the camp, not even other organizations. The assistance provided to the camp is limited to the work of the Kurdish Red Crescent only.

The camp is home for some 800 families with a total number of more than 5,700 people, the vast majority of whom have been displaced from Tal Abyad areas, north of Raqqa and Ras al-Ain, north of Hasaka. The Syrian Observatory calls on relevant organizations and the United Nations to intervene to help displaced persons there.
