Quneitra - SMART

The Afaq al-Mustaqbal organization and the local councils of the Quneitra governorate, Southern Syria, have accused each other of stealing United Nations food aid belonging to the area's displaced people.

In a speech to SMART, the relief official of the Afaq al-Mustaqbal organization in Southern Syria, Fuad al-Hariri, accused several local councils in Quneitra of distributing food aid to undeserving people according to "tribal considerations and favoritism". This behavior forced the organization to "hand- deliver" the aid.

Al-Hariri added that the organization estimated that the villages of the Daraa and Quneitra governorates need 60,000 food baskets, while the amount provided by the UN World Food Program (WFP) is only 54,200 baskets.

The Head of the Um Batnah village local council in Quneitra, Zakaryiah al-Saiid, accused the organization of handing the council 4,000 food baskets less than the amount delivered in April and 9,000 less than the amount delivered in May. Al-Saiid described the organization's distribution mechanism as "temperamental."

In a statement, the local council of the Beir Ajam village in Quneitra denounced the WFP and the Afaq al-Mustaqbal policies, describing them as "racist" for denying Circassian families any aid, which would tear apart the social coherence and the family bonds within the village, according to the statement.

Earlier, several local councils in Daraa and Quneitra denounced the policies of humanitarian organizations and associations in Southern Syria in general, accusing several organizations of working in a "blurry" manner and saying that the work carried out by the organizations' officials work is for personal profit.

The Afaq al-Mustaqbal organization offers aid provided by the UN's WFP and organizes several service projects in Daraa and Quneitra, in collaboration with the international Halo Trust Organization.

Dozens of internally displaced persons (IDPs) live under harsh conditions in the Daraa and Quneitra villages and camps due to a lack of humanitarian support, which has caused a decline in IDP health and education status.
