Idlib – Youssef Gharibi

15 Mar 2023  |  Enab Baladi
The article by Youssef Gharibi discusses the impact of widespread gun possession among civilians in Idlib, Syria. It recounts the story of Ibtisam Ali Pasha, whose daughter was paralyzed by a stray bullet from celebratory gunfire. Despite laws against such practices, the Salvation Government's (SG) regulations have had little effect, with weapons still being common due to the ongoing war. The interior minister, Ahmed Latouf, acknowledges the risks but also cites self-defense as a reason for civilians bearing arms. The article also covers the SG's recent decision to close weapon shops, although enforcement is questionable. The proliferation of weapons among civilians has led to numerous incidents of violence and accidents, raising concerns about safety and the need for more effective control and awareness.

Syrian displaced fear the arrival of winter

10 Nov 2021  |  es.euronews.com
Syria's continuous summer weather signals long-term climate change issues and immediate concerns for northwest residents facing their eleventh winter amid war, with 2.8 million displaced, 1.7 million in camps. With a cold winter expected, inadequate shelter and lack of promised aid for heating leave residents unprepared, relying on plastic bags and twigs for warmth. Most camps lack proper drainage, exposing them to severe weather damage. NGOs' aid covers only a third of survival needs, with families earning around two dollars a day. The Emergency Response Team's winter campaign director, Firas Mansour, highlights the absence of international aid programs for heating and the risk of a humanitarian catastrophe if the international community does not act.

Coronavirus pandemic could reshape the global order

01 Nov 2021  |  Middle East Eye
The article discusses the fears and challenges faced by refugees in the Atmeh camp in northern Syria and other camps in the Middle East and Europe amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Aid workers are seen disinfecting tents, but the cramped living conditions, lack of healthcare infrastructure, and limited access to basic hygiene facilities make the refugee populations highly vulnerable to the virus. The World Health Organisation has declared COVID-19 a pandemic, and experts like Adam Coutts from Cambridge University highlight the neglect of refugees in the global response. Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Greece and Islamic Relief in Syria express concerns about the ability to contain the virus in overcrowded camps and the lack of medical supplies. The Syrian government has not confirmed any cases, but skepticism remains. The article includes additional reporting from Yousef Gharibi at the Atmeh refugee camp.
