Crisis in Syria: Refugees in Idlib camps face war, weather and Covid

In Syria, the conditions facing refugees in the northwest of the country are increasingly desperate. There is ongoing fighting, the coronavirus pandemic, heavy rains and bitterly cold temperatures.

Tens of thousands of people fled to Idlib province about a year ago in search of safety, away from the Assad regime’s attacks on rebel territories.

Hundreds of makeshift refugee camps were set up close to the border with Turkey.

But they lack basic supplies. And the winter weather is making things worse. And there is no safety.
