Aleppo - SMART

The local council of the city of Jarabulus, Aleppo, Northern Syria, is evacuating all the makeshift camps in the city, starting with the Sharia school, which hosts dozens of forcibly displaced persons.

Nour Muhammad, the head of the council's services office, told SMART that the council want to renovate the school reopen as a university affiliated with the Turkish University of Gaziantep. Later, the council will work to evacuate the makeshift camps.

Muhammad added that the council ensured they will create a camp for displaced persons living in the school. The camp will be in the Ain al-Baiyda area, which includes all the necessities and is equipped with bathrooms and solar energy. Muhammad added that, "The displaced persons in the beginning rejected the decision, but now they have begun to accept it because this is in the interest of all residents in the region.”

Muhammed noted that the makeshift camps are too many and the council will evacuate them gradually.

Abu Osama, a man who was also displaced from Deir ez-Zor, expressed his rejection of the council's decision to evacuate. Osama said that the school hosts disabled men, unemployed people, women and children who used to live in the school. They found refuge in the school to escape the bombing.

Abu Osama added, "We do not want to leave the camp and suffer in difficult humanitarian conditions, we ask the council to take us to another building inside the city."

Abu Ammar, a man who was also displaced from Deir ez-Zor, said that the school includes about 150 families, three to a classroom. Abu Ammar called for providing alternative housing inside the city.

On Friday, dozens of forcibly displaced persons from Deir ez-Zor demonstrated against the local council's decision to move them from their place of residence in the school to Zogra.

Forcibly displaced persons in the camps in the city of Jarabulus suffer in difficult humanitarian conditions as diseases spread in the absence of support from relief organizations.

More than 380,000 people have fled their villages and towns in Deir ez-Zor due to intense airstrikes and ongoing battles between the Syrian government and the Islamic State (ISIS) on one hand, and ISIS and the Syrian Democratic Forces on the other.
