New camp to open for people of Afrin
Afrin People’s Municipality is preparing to open a new camp in the Ziyaret village of the Sherawa district.
The Afrin People’s Municipality is opening a new camp in the Ziyaret village of the Sherawa district to support the people of Afrin as the winter approaches. Construction for the camp started a week ago. There will be 250 tents in the camp.
Afrin People’s Municipalities General Coordination Member Mihemed Ehmed said they launched the efforts for the camp by their own means and that the camp will be ready within one month.
Following the invading Turkish army and gang attacks against Afrin, thousands of people from Afrin had continued their resistance in camps in the Shehba and Sherawa districts. Tens of thousands of people from Afrin settled in Serdem, Berxwedan and Afrin camps.
The Shehba and Afrin autonomous administrations have been helping the people of Afrin despite their limited resources. No aid organization has sent any support to date.
