Syrian civilians who have been evacuated from two militant-besieged northwestern towns recount their suffering under terror. The civilians were allowed out of the towns of Kefraya and al-Foua in the Idlib province last December after Syria’s army and allied Lebanese resistance fighters of Hezbollah reached a truce deal with militants on their evacuation.
Press TV's correspondent met with the community of the internally-displaced in the suburbs of the capital Damascus.
“When we were leaving Kefraya, militants did a strict checking to terrify us and provoke us. They also terrified our children,” said an evacuated Syrian.
Another said, “Convoys delivered aid to al-Foua and Kefraya, but they are not enough. Militants used to rob the essential materials of these convoys.”
“We appeal to the United Nations and all the humanitarian organizations to stop the siege,” said one male as militants maintain the siege and keep violating the terms of the ceasefire agreement.
“We are here for emergency cases. Most of the cases are neurological damage and amputations due to lack of healthcare and all of those evacuated have malnutrition cases,” said medic Ashraf Haj Ahmad, who serves as a first aid clinic, set up in Damascus countryside to see to the different health problems of the evacuees.
