Idlib, SMART

Engineer Raed al-Hamoud, manager of the mud village in the town of Maarrat Misrin, Idlib in Northern Syria warns of diseases spreading among internally displaced persons (IDPs) due to sewage water leakages.  

Al-Hamoud stated that significant damage to part of the sewage network let sewage water leak to the ground between the houses and tents.

Al-Hamoud warned against the spread of diseases like Leishmania  as the summer approaches, especially following incidents such as the leakage. He noted that 275 families live in the village, and there are two camps near it.   

Al-Hamoud warned against drinking water as it could have been polluted by the sewage water as it is near the local well that supplies water to the village and camps.  

An IDP in the village said that they suffer from the spread of harmful insects and reptiles, as well as diseases caused by the leakage. The IDP appealed to organizations to help repair the damaged sewage network.  

2,500 families in the camps of the village of Khirbat al-Jouz, north of Idlib on the Syrian-Turkish Borders, suffer because of the spread of insects and diseases, caused by a sewage leak.
