SNHR Statement about Syrian IDPs and Refugees

The number of internally displaced persons has alarmingly spiked making it impossible for local organizations and committees to cover their needs. The number has risen from 3.5 million according to the latest statistic by the Syrian Network for Human Rights issued in early October 2012 to reach around 4.8 million by early December 2012. The bulk of IDPs in the past month came from Aleppo due to the increase in random bombardment by Meg warplanes using explosive barrels. According to SNHR member in Aleppo, the occupancy rate dropped to as low as 4% in some neighbourhoods as most of the residents fled their homes in fear for their lives and the lives of their families. In Homs, on the other hand, many neighbourhoods remain completely deserted such as al-Qusour neighbourhood which has been almost completely destroyed.
