Action For Humanity Condemns Idlib Attacks

At least nine people - including one woman and two children - have been killed following heavy shelling of nine camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Idlib Governorate.

According to the latest information from the ground, the attacks have injured at least 75 people, destroying 63 tents and forcing more than 2,100 displaced families to flee once again. The affected area comprises more than 23 displacement camps in total.

Displaced families in Northwest Syria already face difficult living conditions. At least half of population depend on winter assistance to meet basic needs, the majority of whom are women and children living in camps with limited or no access to heating, electricity, water supply or adequate sewage systems. This leads to disease outbreaks such as the ongoing cholera emergency. As winter approaches, these struggles will intensify, with inadequate shelter providing little protection from harsh weather.

Action For Humanity calls on all military actors in the conflict to adhere to their responsibilities under international humanitarian law and cease the targeting of civilians immediately. These attacks frequently result in injury and loss of life and prevent affected populations from accessing life-saving aid.
