Rainwater has flooded Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps in Idlib and Aleppo, north of Syria, Orient correspondent said.

Idlib countryside and Aleppo countryside witnessed on Monday (December 9) a rainstorm which damaged dozens of the scattered camps in northern Syria, especially IDPs’ camps in Atma and Sarmada near the Syrian-Turkish borders.

Torrential rain and floods swept some of the camps and displaced 3,500 families after their tents were destroyed.

The IDPs appealed to humanitarian organizations, NGOs, and INGOs to help them find solutions and alternatives to their random camps.

White Helmets teams have been operating to meet the humanitarian calls and to address the tragic situation.
