Making a statement as part of the World Refugee Day, Tabqa Women's Rights Protection and Research Center said that international organizations should fulfil their responsibilities towards Syrian refugees.

Tabqa Women's Rights Protection and Research Center made a statement in Mehmudi Camp within the scope of World Refugee Day. Fethiya Al-Deham read the statement and called for international organizations to fulfil their responsibilities towards refugees.

Stating that millions of people have left their lands since the crisis in Syria broke out in 2011, Al-Deham said: “According to the information given by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, 2 million Syrians, 75 percent of whom are women and children, have migrated to neighbouring countries. It has been stated that 7 million people are internally displaced in Syria."

Al-Deham said that the camps in Syria are experiencing very difficult conditions and added: “The conditions of the refugees are bad as they are trying to hold on to life while facing poverty, lack of basic food and problems with water. However, the rights of refugees are clearly written in international agreements. International organizations such as the United Nations and the High Commissioner for Refugees must fulfil their responsibilities towards Northern and Eastern Syria. The current embargo must end. The demands of refugees should be answered.”
