Aleppo: Fire Destroys 35 Makeshift Tents in Displaced Camp

A huge fire broke out in a refugee camp in northern Aleppo province, destroying 35 makeshift tents and wounding four, the Civil Defense agency reported. 

The fire was caused by the burning of rubbish in the Albil camp near Soran town in the northern countryside of Aleppo. 

Another fire broke out in the al-Hol camp in northeastern Hassakeh province on Saturday, which left nine displaced people wounded, mostly women and children. 

Malaz al-Yousef told Zaman al-Wasl that three women and four children were wounded in the fire that destroyed nine tents. 

The sprawling camp in northern Hassakeh province was opened in December 2018 to host people from territory previously controlled by the Islamic Sate and taken over by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.

Eight years of war in Syria have killed 560,000 people and driven half the pre-war population of 22 million from their homes, including more than 6 million as refugees to neighbouring countries.
