On February 19, 2024, heavy rainfall caused damage to an irregular camp sheltering internally displaced persons (IDPs) near Souran town in northern rural Aleppo governorate. Rainwater seeped into tents and formed torrents and muddy pools around them, as well as causing the sides of some tents to collapse. A total of six IDPs’ tents were damaged. The area is under the control of Syrian National Army (SNA).

The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) notes that that these repeated occurrences further worsen the already dire living conditions of IDPs, exacerbating their existing severe hardships. We urge international relief organizations, including the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), to urgently respond to the camps’ basic needs, and provide the camps’ administration with additional tens for emergencies.
