The Syrian “Response Coordinators” organization reported that 47 camps for the displaced in northwestern Syria were damaged during the past 24 hours as a result of the depression in the country as part of a wave of frost and snow that hit several countries in the Middle East and led to obstruction of movement and disruption of studies.

The organization added in its account on Facebook that there has been no effective response to this moment for those affected by the snow storm in the northern camps, which are home to about 1.5 million displaced people.

The Syrian Civil Defense operating in northern Syria also said that the prevailing weather conditions led to the blocking of roads, the besieging of civilians, and the demolition of tents in areas in the countryside of Aleppo and Idlib.

The Civil Defense added that its teams were able to reach camps surrounded by snow and evacuate families from the area, and also worked to drain rainwater and torrential rain.

For his part, Al-Jazeera correspondent in Syria reported that about 20 camps for the displaced Syrians in Afrin, in the western countryside of Aleppo, were damaged by the snowy depression that hit the area during the past hours.

The reporter said that the displaced asked for help from the National Army to open the roads and remove the snow accumulations, while the Civil Defense operating in northwestern Syria warned the people not to approach the torrents for their safety.
