Protestors call for return to their own areas in Syria’s Idlib

IDLIB, Syria (North Press) – Dozens of IDPs in al-Karama camps on Syrian-Turkish border, north of Idlib, protested on Saturday demanding to return to the areas from which they were forced to flee and to release their detainees.

According to sources, more than 520 families in al-Ayqa camp, north of Idlib, demanded to return to their cities and towns from which they were displaced after the military operations that took place in the southern countryside of Idlib and the northern countryside of Hama Governorate at the end of 2019.

Idlib Governorate in northwestern Syria is run by Salvation Government which is affiliated with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS, formerly al-Nusra Front).

There is also Syrian Interim Government which is affiliated with the Syrian opposition and it is based in Turkey. It mainly controls areas in Aleppo countryside.  

The protestors, who went out for the fourth consecutive  day, demanded to release the detainees, according to the same source.

The areas of northwest Syria are included in the ceasefire agreement signed by Turkey and Russia in March 2020, after a military campaign in the region, but they witness frequent mutual bombardment despite the entry of the ceasefire into force.
