Idlib - SMART

Relief and humanitarian organizations provide limited aid for internally displaced persons (IDPs) from different areas in Syria currently living in the village of Eblin in Idlib, Northern Syria.

Hasan Harmush, the head of Eblin local council, stated that about 100 displaced families of between 525 and 600 persons live in Eblin. The families suffer in harsh humanitarian conditions as aid organizations fail to provide the necessary services to them.

Harmush added that the lack of relief and psychological support makes life difficult for the IDPs in the village, saying that the aid is limited to emergency aid and food packages.

Harmush said that the people of Eblin offered housing for the IDPs for free, with the exception of two or three families who preferred to pay rent. The local council continues to call on organizations for aid.

Harmush's statements follow a meeting between local councils and the IDPs in the al-Zawiyah Mountain area. The Day After Organization called for the meeting to discuss the IDPs' social integration.

Asaad Duqmaq, the Day After communications official, reported that the meeting was held to prepare a project for the IDPs in the area.

Duqmaq added that about 5,000 displaced families who live in the al-Zawiyah Mountain area do not have any documents to prove their ownership of the properties they left behind in their hometowns. These properties will go under a new property law issued by the Syrian government, commonly referred to as Law No. 10. According to Law No. 10, the property will be confiscated if the owners do not confirm their ownership before a deadline.

Earlier, correspondence coordinators called for emergency aid to more than 118,292 forcibly displaced people from Eastern Ghouta, Eastern Qalamun, Southern Damascus, and Northern Homs, who recently arrived in Northern Syria, in addition to 300 thousands other IDPs who came earlier from Eastern Hama and Southern Idlib.
