One thousand four hundred and fifty two civilians out of whom four were injured are evacuated from El-Waar in Hums to Jarablus in Syria, which is still a safe zone.

IHH teams distributed emergency aid packages that contain dates, biscuits, potable water and baby diapers to the civilians directly at the evacuation point zero.

IHH Bab Al-Salam office representative Ömer Koparan who supervised the evacuation operation in the area said ‘’We have been working to alleviate the suffering of Syrian war victims a little bit since the start of the current conflict in Syria. Especially the humanitarian diplomatic efforts that our foundation has been carrying out are as crucial as our relief efforts. In this regard we have welcomed 1,452 civilians evacuated from al-Waar, Hums directly as the evacuation point zero.” 


Koparan noted that they have initially distributed emergency aid packages to the civilians evacuated to Jarablus. However they will continue to help in terms of providing shelter and healthcare to the evacuees.  

Koparan reported that 15,000 civilians will be evacuated in total and three civilians groups have arrived from the same area over the past weeks and they will continue to arrive in the upcoming days as well.
