MANBIJ, Syria – The Co-Presidency of the Executive Council of the Democratic Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (DAA), accompanied by the Manbij Civil Council (MCC), visited the Jadidat al-Hamar camp for displaced people to see the latest work on the camp. The MCC and DAA began work on the camp west of Manbij city to accommodate the displaced people from Idlib.
“The main goal is to accommodate the people of Idlib, the Syrians who are facing a humanitarian disaster, in light of the war,” said Hamid al-Mehbaj, Co-President of the Executive Council. “The biggest loser in the war is the Syrian people wherever they are, especially now in Idlib.”
He stressed that since the beginning of the attack on Idlib, they have invited the displaced to come to the regions managed by the DAA and have opened their doors to them.
The number of families that have arrived from Idlib to DAA regions is estimated at more than 1,500 families.
Al-Mehbaj explained that the step of establishing the camp in Manbij came at the request of the people of Idlib arriving to the region, who wished to have a camp of their own. Al-Mehbaj confirmed that they are continuing to work on the establishment of the camp and will manage and maintain it after its completion.
At the end of his speech, he appealed to the United Nations, as well as friendly countries and humanitarian organizations, to provide humanitarian support to this camp.
