Published on:Recent bombing forces thousands more Syrians from their homes
The UN has said it is “gravely concerned” over reports of a worsening humanitarian situation facing civilians across northwest Syria, with rising casualties, and “waves of displacement” due to intensifying conflict.
Hundreds of people have been badly injured in Idlib, Hama and Aleppo governorates as fighting intensifies.There has been a surge of airstrikes, barrel bomb attacks and artillery strikes in the north of Hama and south of Idlib areas of Syria. Over 400,000 have moved from their homes to the Turkey border. These attacks are a very dangerous indicator that Idleb city will be targeted leaving civilians at risk. 5 schools and 5 medical facilities were also bombed and put out of service in this area this week. We have information that educational facilities, health facilities and residential areas are being bombed by helicopters and planes. Vehicles loaded with mattresses, carpets and even household appliances like refrigerators and washing machines could be seen leaving villages in southern Idlib.
We cannot let this go on any longer. The Syrian people need our help. We will keep you updated and as always will continue to deliver emergency aid to Syrians in need.
