UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The number of civilians who have migrated to the Turkish border line from the Syrian region of Idlib since the beginning of November has exceeded 328,000 as a result of attacks by Bashar al-Assad’s regime, Russia and Iranian-backed groups, as well as recently 44,000 civilians have been displaced in the area over the past four days as a result of the aggression, reports Anadolu Agency (AA).
The population in Idlib province has begun to shift to the border with Turkey since the Syrian regime and its supporters stepped up attacks in November.
Muhammed Hallaj, director of the Syria Coordination and Response Group, told AA that 44,000 civilians have been displaced in the last four days, adding that the number of civilians displaced near the Syrian-Turkish border since early November has reached 328,418. .
He had earlier said that in the event of a re-intensification of the attacks, a new wave of migrants could start from the Jabal al-Zawiya region, whereby 250,000 civilians could be displaced from their settlements.
Otherwise, during the May 2017 meeting of Turkey, Russia and Iran in Astana, Kazakhstan, Idlib was declared a de-escalation zone, where acts of aggression would be banned.
Turkey and Russia reached an additional agreement in September last year in Sochi in the wake of the Syrian regime’s ceasefire violation.
However, regime forces with the help of supporters have continued their attacks despite the deal. Since that date, over 1,300 civilians have been killed as a result of the attacks.
