Homs, Syria

Kurdish Sunni minorities of Akrad Dasneh, a small town in north-eastern Homs, have been kicked out of their hometown encircled by towns predominated by Alawites loyal to the Assad regime.
Hundreds of families are now distributed among Ghanto and neighboring towns in rural Homs. They are taking refuge in buildings mainly used for cattle and goats.
Abu Ibrahim, his mother and his family have fled their home in Akrad Dasneh and had to relocate several times. The family is now sheltering in one of these barns under miserable living conditions.

00:59 Abu Ibrahim
“We are Kurds of Dasneh. We used to live with other Alawite residents loyal to Assad regime. They put pressure on us and shot at our homes. They also killed two of our young men and kidnapped some others. Residents loyal to Assad regime joined the fights in central Homs and the neighboring areas, and some of their men got killed in the clashes so they used to come after us for revenge. We are minorities and we were force to flee our homes. It’s been four years now and out situation is getting worse. Everything is expensive and the Russian airstrikes hit non-stop. We keep on moving from one place to another.”

01:47 Abu Ibrahim
“The kids eat thyme and goat very often, sometimes we don’t even have bread. We cannot afford to buy bread; it coasts between 300 SYP (1.4 USD) and 500 SYP (2.3 USD). In Ramadan we fast all day and when it’s time to eat we have almost nothing, no food. Women who are supposed to fast are also breast-feeding their babies and they should be having enough food and nutrition to produce enough milk for the babies.”

02:30 Abu Ibrahim
“We are here sheltering in stores with cattle. Just behind this shelter there are cows and sheep. The kids here are suffering from asthma and respiration problems because of the smell. We live in miserable conditions. Look here how can this shelter be an isolation tool. If I could remove it you could see the cattle right behind us.. The babies one month and two months old are suffering from asthma because of these conditions.”

03:28 Hassan
Q: “What are you lacking?”
A: “We are lacking everything, we need clothing we need everything.. We used to go to public guarding and playgrounds, now it’s impossible because of the shelling. We used to go to school, but now we cannot go anymore.
Q: “What is that you need the most?”
A: “Clothing.. School.. Everything.”

04:26 Aisha
“We don’t have enough food. Thank God we are alive. We only seek God’s mercy.. May God bless you.. He wanted us to be here. We thank him for everything.”

05:08 Um Ibrahim
“We are Kurds of Dasneh. We used to live with people loyal to Assad regime in our hometown, but they were pressuring us and forced us to leave our homes. We fled at night with our kids and here we are it’s been four years and we are still away from our homes. You can see our living conditions. We have to keep relocating from place to another. We are barely receiving one meal per day and it’s insufficient for us and our children. No one is looking after us it’s been four years. The children can’t even play they sit here with us all day in the stores. It’s been four years. Where shall we go? We were kicked out of our homes and lands. Where shall we go?"

Amuda, Syria

A remarkable increase of people infected by Leishmaniasis is reported across the Middle East. As the ongoing conflict in Syria is causing the migration of thousands from the countrysides, many refugees and residents are exposed to the parasitic disease which is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected sand flies which breed in rubble and trash. The disease causes horrible open sores and well as disfiguring skin lesions.

Leishmaniasis, commonly known among Syrians as “Aleppo pimple”, had previously been contained in Aleppo and neighboring cities. However today’s refugee crisis has triggered a huge outbreak with hundreds of thousands affected in Syria and neighboring countries that are hosting Syrian refugees.
Reports indicated that ISIS-controlled territories, specially in Raqqa, Deir Azzor and Hasaka, are the regions most affected by Leishmaniasis.

High-Risk Education in Aleppo
Aleppo, Syria

January 10, 2016
Aleppo, Syria

Despite shelling and barrel bomb attacks, students and volunteer instructors are still showing up at al-Risala school in the rebel held Hanano area in the northern city of Aleppo, Syria.

With no or little resources, the teachers are trying to give students a basic education in the absence of a school curriculum in areas controlled by the Syrian opposition.

The school is located in a district which has been targeted in shelling and airstrikes. “The students and teachers are in danger, the building might be heavily damaged or even destroyed at any moment” says Ibrahim al-Ali, the school principal. “We have no choice but to keep operating at high risk. This is the situation in almost all schools in rebel held Aleppo”.

Interviews:

04:03
Nada, Teacher:
“The number of students is good, but we are short of instructors. Teachers are not available. Q: What are your main needs other than for teachers?
A: We actually need everything.. The school building needs restoration, the students have not received backpacks, the teachers have no support.. There’s a lack of everything.”

04:59
Abu Hassan, Teacher:
“I am the science teacher, I try my best to improve the scientific skills of the students whether in math or physics or chemistry. Q: How do you describe the student comprehension abilities?
A: Starting directly with the curriculum in books is impossible because the students did not have the chance to learn the basics. It’s been like a month since we started teaching them the basics, the simple operations such as addition and subtraction. Introduction to physics and introduction to chemistry, we are only teaching them the basics that they missed for now.”

05:43
Mohamed, Student:
“We are here in al-Risala School, in Hanano area.. We have few teachers, a teacher of mathematics and a teacher of religious education.. We have no other teachers, however they are trying to teach us the basics so we can understand the actual curriculum. I hope that Syria will be a safe and secure place again especially in Aleppo because Bachar al-Assad targets us with barrel bombs and has destroyed all areas of Aleppo. Even our instructors had to flee because of the massive shelling.”
Q: Did you see any fighter jets striking?
A: We’ve seen a lot, and barrel bombs are dropped over our heads.”

06:32
Zainab, Student:
“We have no books but they told us that they would bring us some. We came here to study but we have shortage of teachers. The teacher is trying his best to teach us. When winter comes we have no heaters and the windows are all damaged and we have no means to replace them. Every time we go out for recess helicopters come so they bring us back inside out of fear.”

07:04
Ibrahim al-Ali, School Principal:
“We are educating the students despite the lack of an educational system. Almost all teachers are volunteers. Some are university graduates, others have just graduated from school. They are all doing volunteer work with nothing in return. The condition of the school is miserable. The building needs restoration, electricity and water repairs. We face a persistent cut of electricity which is affecting the lighting in class rooms. We also need water tanks to store water. We are also expecting the problems which we went through last year such as lack of heaters and the windows destroyed because of the constant shelling and barrel bombs by the regime.”

Volunteers from the "White Helmets" search and rescue organization responded after the bombing targeted a crowded market in central Hanano, leaving scores of dead and injured.

According to local activists in the opposition controlled part of Aleppo, Syrian regime forces have dropped numerous barrel bombs on residential areas since early April, targeting civilians and field hospitals.

On April 27, 2016 a bombing hit the "al-Quds" field hospital and killed over 50 people including Dr. Wassim Maaz, the only pediatrician remaining in rebel held Aleppo.

A large truck convoy has delivered humanitarian aid supplies to the Syrian opposition-held town of Rastan under siege in central Homs Province. The 65 truck convoy is sponsored by the UN, The International Committee of the Red Cross and and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent.
The ICRC says the convoy is the first to reach Rastan in over a year.
The supplies include food, medicine and medical equipment, electricity generators and water treatment materials.
Opposition officials say Syrian regime forces did not allow a large portion of the medical supplies including medications and vaccines mainly for children.
The town, which has been under siege for three years, has seen its population double to 120-thousand because of people fleeing fighting in the region.

Damascus, Syria

Ancient Jewish and Islamic sites in the Jobar neighborhood of Damascus are victims of the Syrian civil war. The rebel held area includes the oldest synagogue in Damascus and one of the oldest in the world.
The Eliyahu Hanavi Synagogue complex was heavily damaged in May of 2014, during shelling by the Syrian regime forces as they attempted to retake the area.
Mortar bombs also damaged and destroyed neighboring ancient Islamic sites such as the al-Sadat Mosque, al-Assaami tomb, and the Old Bath. All were hundreds of years old.
The Eliyahu Hanavi Synagogue used to contain what is believed to be the oldest Torah. Both regime and rebels accuse the other of stealing the synagogue’s artifacts.
The Jobar neighborhood has been controlled by Syrian rebels since regime forces withdrew in 2013. It is the closest opposition held area to central Damascus, and witnesses clashes almost on a daily basis.
Translation:
- (02:18) Abu Kamakl, Local activist:

“The Synagogue remained here in Jobar until the beginning of 2013 before the withdrawal of the regime forces. It used to contain the oldest Torah in the world and the closet to the Torah of the prophet Moses. The Synagogue also known asThe Prophet Khedr Tomb, was looted in 2013 when the regime forces withdrew from the area, they stole all the content and ancient properties of the synagogue. The Synagogue is a complex composed of two main courtyards, one of which is renovated and contains the house of the synagogue servant, and a second very old courtyard. After it was looted the regime bombed the synagogue many times until it was destroyed, as you can see there is almost nothing left of the building. There used to be a passage here and a passage there and the tomb of the prophet Khedr, the house of the servant a small school belonging to the synagogue, they were all destroyed in shelling, twice with airstrikes, once with remotely guided missiles, and now the synagogue turned to be only rocks.”

  • (05:25) Abu Najem, Resident of Jobar:

“We are here near the Jobar Grand Mosque.. When the Alawite regime recognized the value of this historical old mosque that was built in the era of the Caliph Omar ben Abdul Aziz, he destroyed it to prevent muslims from coming and praying inside. As you can see they destroyed it, as they also destroyed the neighboring synagogue which is the most inveterate in the world not only in Syria, it was also looted by the Shabiha who left nothing behind. Also the targeted the Harmala ben Walid Mosque which has a great historical value and it’s famous among the Arab world, the regime forces ruined it before leaving the area.”
