The Autonomous Administration of North and East of Syria issued a written statement, a copy of which was received by ANHA agency, renewing its call for the people of Idlib to go to NE, Syria and provide them with what is needed.
The statement read:
"With exacerbation of the humanitarian situation in Idlib, as a result of the ongoing war there, and its repercussions on unarmed civilians in a bad situation, which has led to a major wave of displacement, requires cooperation and efforts, and the need to act to alleviate their suffering.
The Autonomous Administration of North and East of Syria and the SDF have already declared that they are ready to carry to shoulder its humanitarian duty, out of a sense of suffering experienced by unarmed civilians, as well as a part of the duty and responsibility, and in this context we reiterate once again to our people from Idlib that we are ready to receive them in accordance with our capabilities and circumstances, knowing that there are numbers who have arrived in our region, and we have done our duty to them.
However, there are still serious difficulties as a result of the presence of hundreds of thousands of displaced persons from the areas occupied by Turkey, and because of the state of siege that we are subjected to, following the closure of the Yaarabiya border crossing by a UN resolution, and the materials that come through the United Nations institutions through Damascus, few of which reach.
In this context, in order for Autonomous Administration to shoulder its humanitarian duty in the face of the new wave of displacement from Idlib, the Autonomous Administration of North and East of Syria appeals to the international community, international institutions and, in particular, the United Nations, to communicate and coordinate with Autonomous Administration, and to make proposals. "We must reconsider its decision to close the Yaarabiya border crossing and work to deliver humanitarian aid directly to the areas of northern and eastern Syria, so that we can assume our humanitarian responsibilities towards the large numbers of displaced people."
More than 1,500 families from Idlib city headed towards of the Autonomous Administration areas, and the Autonomous Administration is working to establish special camps to shelter them in conjunction with the regular supply of food and medical assistance.
