DARAA IS BURNING!
The current wave of attacks on Daraa is unprecedented, a barbaric onslaught by the Assad regime. With barrel bombs, missiles and artillery, combined with intensive bombardment by Russian aircraft, enclaves (camps) in the city are being reduced to rubble.
Residents of neighborhoods, like Daraa Al Samoud Camp, Daraa Camp, the District of Al Manshiyeh, have fled their homes and taken to open fields. Thousands of women and children are homeless with no shelter, little food and at the mercy of relentless attacks from rockets, mortar shelling, tanks and artillery.
Many of the areas under attack in Daraa were created after the 1967 war with Israel, populated by displaced Palestinians who are now Syrians and among the poorest class in Syria before the war.
BRIDGE OF PEACE SYRIA HAS BEEN CALLED TO HELP IN THIS CRISES
Bridge of Peace is now working with a South Syria Medical Team who is on call 24/7, rescuing and treating the injured and wounded with three ambulances and transporting patients to hospitals for further treatment. Here is an eyewitness account from our team leader, E.M. Doctor Hussein Al Fnicker.
“For days of unprecedented shelling with all types of weapons, this has become the most barbaric assault on life with destruction of infrastructure since the beginning of the revolution. Rocket launches from the ground stop only briefly when the helicopters have left the atmosphere only to return with more bombs.
Dora Dera Camp is a completely destroyed area that cannot be used as shelter for even a single family. All civilians who remain are subject to bombardment without shelter. We call upon all local councils and relief organizations for help in order to avoid massacres against civilians who are forced to remain. Needed are life essentials, including emergency food, water and tents.”
