UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Russia calls for averting the impending humanitarian catastrophe in northern Syria, said Alexei Bakin, head of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria.
In this area there are seven prisons for Ishilovites and eight camps for members of their families. In total – about 120 thousand people. The facilities are under the protection of the Syrian troops (Democratic Syrian Forces), supported by the United States.
During the conflict in the northeastern regions, civilians may die of starvation and epidemics, and militants may escape from places of detention.
All parties to the Syrian conflict must take measures to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, Bakin emphasized.
On October 9, it became known about the beginning of Operation Source of Peace in Syria, aimed at combating Kurdish militants and Ishilovites in northeast Syria.
The military operation involves Turkish government forces and the forces of the Syrian National Army supported by Ankara.
The goal is to create a security belt for Turkey with a length of 480 kilometers.
