Daraa - SMART

On Thursday, thousands of families fled the town of Nawa in Daraa, Southern Syria, to the border with the occupied Golan, for fear of the Syrian government and Russian bombing.

The deputy head of the Daraa governorate council, Emad al-Bateen, told SMART that more than 60 thousand civilians were displaced from the city to escape the bombing.

Al-Bateen added that the internally displaced persons (IDPs) headed towards the border with  Golan. They suffer from the lack of camps and shelters to receive them, and a shortage of drinking water, food and medical aid.

Al-Bateen stated that the governorate council is trying to secure tents for the IDPs through tenders in neighboring countries due to the inability to tailor them locally.

The local council in Nawa called on the United Nations, international and humanitarian organizations to provide support, shelters, food and medicine to the IDPs and work to stop the shelling.

The council also appealed to the Jordanian government to open its border with Syria for the IDPs fleeing the bombing.

For days now, the town has been raided. Earlier today, Russian warplanes also launched three raids on its main street; one of the raids targeted civilians trying to flee to safer areas, killing two of them and injuring dozens, including women and children.

Syrian government forces supported by loyalist militias and the Russian air force launched a military campaign in Daraa. The loyalist forces seized control of several towns and villages, amid intense air and artillery shelling, killing and injuring dozens of civilians, and displacing tens of thousands of civilians. Several hospitals have been forced to shut down.
