The Arabic-language al-Watan daily quoted militant-affiliated sources as reporting that a sum of 1,039 refugee camps are controlled by Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) and other terrorist groups in Idlib province, adding that over 778, 000 refugees are living in the camps.
It went on to say that over a half of the camps are located in Harem region in Northern Idlib, adding that refugees in the camps are suffering from very dire living conditions, including shortage of fuel, drinking water, health service and other necessary facilities.
The daily further pointed to the growing infighting among rival terrorist groups and intensified insecurity in militant-held regions in Idlib province, and said that the refugees’ difficulties are deteriorating.
Syria’s Arabic-language al-Mahaver news website reported last month that body organ trading by terrorists intensified in Idlib city and other militant-held regions in the Northwestern province.
It further said that the terrorists kidnap several civilians in the militant-held regions in Idlib each day to excise their organs in dreadful operations and send them to Turkey by certain groups that are running operations in both countries.
The civilians go under illegal surgery and their body organs are taken out and sold at high prices, the news website said, adding that people in the Northeastern city of Idlib have “called on the Syrian Army to enter their region and save them from the terrorist groups’ brutalities”.
