More than 500,000 people are displaced over the past two months as Russian-backed Syrian forces launched an offensive in Syria’s last stronghold of Syrian rebels.
“By December 1, 520,000 people had fled their homes and fled. quite 80 percent of the victims were women and youngsters , ”said UNOCHA spokesman David Sumson.
It is one among the most important displaced people since the Syrian war began nine years ago.
“Ultimately displacement has exacerbated the already dire humanitarian situation. quite 400,000 people have fled their homes from late April to late August. Many are displaced repeatedly , ”said Suan.
He said the United Nations warned of the plight of quite three million people, including quite half the displaced people in Idlib and neighboring provinces.
The last round, which was still controlled by the rebels and therefore the jihadists, was administered by government forces and therefore the army. Russian-backed militias and other allies launched an offensive last week.
Government forces have seized dozens of villages and a number of other major cities, including the previous rebel stronghold of Maaretal-Numan, and continued north-eastern attacks that have displaced more people near the Turkish border.
Syria targets oil refineries
The Syrian state-run press agency SANA said the blasts killed four oil and gas plants in Syria and damaged some factories.
“Terrorists and therefore the ir supporters attacked the oil sector and the oil fields within the early hours of February 4,” said Energy Minister Ali Ghanem.
The targeted factories were Ebla and therefore the southern gas field; Al-Rayyan fraxinella and petroleum refinery in Huang province, he said. An offshore attack targeting offshore pipelines has not been released, and it’s not been confirmed who launched the attacks within the week.
The government said on January 27 that submarines had been bombing a pipeline linking the Banias refinery.
In the nearly nine-year-long Syrian war, the Damascus administration lost control of key oil fields and relied on imported oil.
