Heyva Sor report 30-09-19

Turkish military and Islamic groups invasion in Northeast Syria:

On October 9, 2019 the Turkish army with Islamic allies started an offensive targeting mainly the area between Sere Kaniye and Tell Abiad. SDF in turn started to defend it. After few hours a massive displacement of population started toward south areas of Hasake, Raqqa, Ein issa and Tel Tamir. Below the detailed report day by day with photos and the casualties recorded.

25th- 30th of October,2019

Tiltamir people are fleeing as the heard Turkish army and Turkish backed group are close to the city. 1

Situation of IDPs

The number of counted IDPs just in Hassakeh City contains almost 3.000 families and around 11.500 individuals, from this number we have at least: 23 unaccompanied children, more than 5000 children between the ages 0-13, and more than 400 pregnant or breastfeeding women. Those IDPs are currently divided into around 60 schools.

Many more families and individuals are displaced in and around Raqqa, Tabqa and Qamishli, and elsewhere. Many displaced families were able to find temporary accommodation at their relatives’ or friends’ houses.

Some thousands arrived to northern Iraq to a formal camp of Mosul IDPs. This camp was not prepared to receive this high number of IDPs and is missing tents, WASH facilities as well as Health Care services and the provision of food and water.

The biggest deficit for IDPs in Hassakeh is the lack of water, as well as WASH facilities and toilets, we are expecting outbreaks of diarrhea in the near future.

KRC is providing mobile units for primary health care and some ambulances for emergencies. This is not enough for the amount of people, taking into consideration the bad hygiene circumstances.

Support of IDPs in Hassakeh

Currently the Self-Administration is planning and building a new camp near by Hassakeh. This camp is prepared for 40-50.000 IDPs. Further the formal Yezidian camp “Newroz” is under preparation to host around 10-15.000 people. Already now some people have arrived to this camp, due to the lack of tents these people are currently sleeping in the Toilet and WASH containers.

Since those IDPs are expected to stay for a long period in the new camps, the self-administration was planning to set up caravans, also taking under consideration that soon it will be very cold. But the high number of IDPs can unfortunately not be covered by caravans. The request to UNHCR to provide tents is still ignored.

Note: while writing this report the UNHCR were sending 20 tents to Newroz Camp. 2

With thankful regards to the great solidarity from around the world and private donations, including the Kurdish governorates in northern Iraq, we were able to support those camps with infrastructure and the provision of health care in the future. But taking into consideration the coming winter and the lack of time it is still not enough. So much is missing… starting from cooking facilities and heaters, ending with proper WASH facilities and the basic provision of food and water.

The main water pipe, destroyed by a Turkish airstrike is still not fixed and the whole region is still lacking water.

30th of October

The Kurdish Red Crescent had to further reduce the number of staff of Tal Tamr (Legerin Hospital) as the clashes were getting closer to the city. By the time of writing the clashes were around 5km away from Tal Tamr.

Many families left their homes as well and were heading mostly towards Hassakeh.

Also, GoS troops left Tal Tamr, the clashes increased with the ending of the ceasefire and the Turkish army has superior equipment to the Syrian army…

● While writing this report we got confirmed that the SDF is heading out to Tal Tamr and started offensive to protect Tal Tamr and the villages around.
