Syria and Russia Hold UN Responsible for Humanitarian Catastrophe at al-Hol Camp

There are 72,000 people living in the al-Hol Camp in Hassakeh province, who are suffering through dire circumstances reports SANA.

The Syrian-Russian Coordination Committees for the Return of Displaced Syrians has said that the United Nations is responsible for minimizing the humanitarian catastrophe of thousands affecting civilians in the al-Hol Camp in Hassakeh province, which is dominated by US-backed militias.

In a joint statement issued on Wednesday, the two committees said that estimations of some UN organisations about the situation in the al-Hol Camp are alarming as they significantly diminish the scope of the humanitarian catastrophe, where 72,000 people live, 91 percent of whom are women and children.

“The inability of the camp’s administration, which includes US members, from ensuring security inside the camp makes the suffering continuous and leads to the death of many,” the statement said.

The statement warned that the harsh living conditions, hot weather, as well as the lack of food and potable water are creating the perfect environment for outbreaks of infectious diseases.

The statement called upon the US and its allies to stop putting artificial barriers in front of the Syrian-Russian initiative for the return of displaced Syrian to their homes.
