Al-Raqqa - SMART

Dozens of displaced families from the Deir al-Zor governorate, Eastern Syria, arrived in al-Raqqa governorate, Northeastern Syria.

A source from a relief organization, who preferred to remain anonymous, and other local sources told SMART on Thursday that about 70 displaced families from the city of al-Shaafah and the towns of al-Sousah and al-Kashmah in southeastern Deir al-Zor arrived in the al-Raqqa governorate after fleeing battles between the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Islamic State (IS).

The sources added that the displaced families settled near the villages of al-Hajaj, al-Matlab, Tal Anizah, and Khass Dakour in the eastern al-Raqqa countryside. A humanitarian organization provided the displaced families with several tents, food supplies, and children's supplies.

Dozens of families from Deir al-Zor have fled to al-Raqqa recently, living in dozens of makeshift camps and other camps supervised by the Kurdish Autonomous Administration.

The displaced people in the SDF-controlled areas suffer in poor humanitarian conditions, amidst declining services and a lack of support, while the SDF increased its security measures in the area and clashed with the IS in Eastern Syria.
