UNITED NATIONS, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) । Fifteen people were killed over attacks in northwestern Syria over the weekend, a UN spokeswoman said on Monday. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, “fifteen people, including four children, were reportedly killed,” Dujarric said.
“In Idlib alone, displaced people are seeking shelter in more than 100 schools. Camps for the displaced people are already overcrowded, with hundreds of thousands of people forced to stay out of the open air, outside camps and reception centers,” he said.
The spokesman said that since the start of hostilities in that area nearly four months ago, there have been about 575,000 individual displacement movements.
Many people have been displaced up to five times, while some have been displaced up to 10 times.
With the new school year about to begin, access to education will be compromised for many children, he said. He urged all parties to de-escalate the conflict.
