Idlib - SMART

On Monday, forcibly displaced people (FDP) in a camp near the village of Hantoteen of the city of Maarrat al-Nu'man, 32 kilometers south of Idlib, Northern Syria, appeal to humanitarian organizations to provide tents and heating devices for them.

The FDP Muhammad al-Fakhri said that he has been living in the camp for a year and a half since the Syrian government forces destroyed his house. Al-Fakhri noted that they need urgent aid and that no one has responded to their demands.

An FDP who introduced herself as Umm Ahmad requested new tents, tent covers, and food after floods submerged their old tents.

An FDP who introduced herself as Umm Yusuf complained about the FDP's poor living conditions after storms hit the area. Umm Yusuf added that 13 families have been living in the camp for more than a year without receiving aid from humanitarian organizations.

The FDP in camps in Northern Syria suffer in poor conditions, lacking basic services. The FDP appeal to humanitarian organizations and local councils to alleviate their suffering, provide medicine, vaccination, and means of heating, especially in winter, but no organization responds to the FDP’ demands. Earlier, heavy rain water flooded many camps.
