Aleppo - SMART

Several residents and displaced people in the city of Jarabulus, 100 kilometers northeast of Aleppo, Northern Syria, complain about an official decision to remove shopping stands and vendor carts from the city streets and sidewalks.

Hassan Abu Ahmad, a shopping stand owner, reported that his stand is his only source of income under the current difficult living conditions, calling on the concerned authorities to provide a substitute if the decision aims to organize and maintain traffic.

Zacharia Awwas, the head of the police office in the city's local council, said that the reason for the decision is that the shopping stands block sidewalks, especially in the main market, obstructing the pedestrians' movement. Awwas added that the city has more than 400 stands.

Awwas said that the decision will enter into force at the beginning of next month, adding that stands will be accepted after their owners pay a certain fee, according to the size of their stands, and organize their stands on sidewalks in a "civilized" manner.

The people of Jarabulus suffer from overpopulation and high costs of housing, after the local council fixed the rental prices only to reverse it at the request of the public.

The Free Syrian Army gained control of the city of Jarabulus after the Turkish Army launched the Euphrates Shield Operation in 2016 against the Islamic State.
