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 Sunday (March 31) a rain storm which damaged dozens of the scattered camps in northern Syria, especially IDPs’ camps in Atma, Qah, and Kherbet Eljoz near the Syrian-Turkish borders, Orient correspondent added.
Torrential rain and floods swept some of the camps and displaced 8,000 families after their tents were destroyed.
