Displacement in

Reports | 8 11 2016

More than 15 buses reached the outskirts of the towns "Qudsaya" and "Hamah" in Damascus countryside on Thursday morning, and a number of these buses entered into these two towns, to take out the first batch of people from there to the province of "Idleb" -Northern Syria- according to the agreement between the opposition factions in "Qudsaya" and Hamah and the Syrian Regime Forces.

Under the agreement, the factions have to fully be disarmed and hand over the weapon of all kinds, and about 150 out of them with hundreds of Syrian civilians should move to the north (Idleb), and more than 300 other fighters should get into a settlement with Syrian regime, and the agreement will be without a guarantor by any party or observer.

The international law lawyer "Aktham Nu'aysa" said to Rozana: "International humanitarian law and the Geneva Conventions approved the reconciliation or truce agreements or cessation of hostilities, this is totally legal from the international law point of view."

"Nu'aysa" explained in a phone call with Rozana that what is happening in Syria, under the terms of the war and the fait accompli policy is a case of "acquiescence" in favor of the Syria regime that plays a powerful role there.

He added:  "We can say that "Qudsaya" and Hamah are living a special circumstance and that the people there want to get out and make adjustments according to what we receive through the media, but the Syrian regime is practicing human rights violations during the implementation of these agreements and this prejudices to the legitimacy of these agreements, but on the other hand We should know that the word "displacement" apply fully to what happened in Darya because the regime has forced the fighters and the entire population to leave."

A campaign was launched last week by activists, journalists and human rights activists and politicians under the name: "No for The Forced Displacement in Syria."

The campaigners prepared a study on forced displacement and on siege in order to displace the population, documented 16 regions in the province of Homs and its countryside, and 7 districts in Damascus that were subjected to displacement due to the siege.

The campaign documented the siege of nearly a million displaced people and 200 thousand civilians in the eastern neighborhoods of Damascus, and 250 thousand civilians are trapped in the neighborhoods of southern Damascus.

The study showed that there are six districts had been forcibly displaced in the province of "Deir ez-Zor", while reported six districts in the province of "Aleppo" were subjected to forced displacement, and still three million displaced and 300 thousand civilians are trapped in the neighborhoods of eastern Aleppo. For the southern countryside of Aleppo, the majority of its people were displaced after the attacks by the Syrian regime and its allies, in addition to the displacement of most of the people from the northern countryside of Aleppo after the attacks by "Democratic Forces of Syria."

In Raqqa province that lies under the control of the "ISIS", the study reported that 300 thousand civilians have been displaced from their homes, and 50 thousand civilians are still trapped under "ISIS" hold, while most of the rural people in the north were displaced because of the fighting taking place there.

The campaign team ended this study stating that what is happening in Syria is the largest displacement process in the world, pointing out that there are 11.6 million people left their homes, of whom 7.6 million displaced, and 4 million refugees.

"Idleb" province became a center for displaced people who were gathered there through these truces and agreements, and the Syrian regime used to transport civilians and insurgents by the well-known "Green Buses".
