Northern Aleppo Countryside is considered one of the main revolution’s strongholds and the biggest reservoir
of population. The liberation of this area was strategically important in supporting the Syrian Revolution, as it is
the only crossing to Turkish lands. Humanitarian aid is passed to out of regime control areas and injured people
are transferred to Turkish hospitals through this crossing.
After the failure of Russian plans in supporting the regime to move forward the Southern Aleppo Countryside
and opening the highway Damascus-Aleppo, the Russian Air Force (RuAF) started shelling the northern countryside
of Aleppo in order to prepare the regime to siege Aleppo City. About 161 Russian air raids were launched
during last week of January 2016 on NSAG controlled areas in Northern Aleppo Countryside targeting civil….

governorates Aleppo, Idleb and Lattakia during November 2015. The assessed clusters are Atma, Al
Karama, Al Rahma, Sarmada, Salqin, Yamadia, Qah, Kherbet Aljouz, Jarablus and Bab Al Salameh. Camp
situation was relatively stable during November, where 176 new displaced families have arrived to the
assessed camps during November. As well as, some camps witnessed the departure of some families and
individuals from some camps mainly for two reasons, firstly, some IDPs returned to their villages for olive
picking season, and secondly many newly displaced families did not receive shelter in camps so they
were headed to Turkey or resorted to some safe neighboring villages. The two assessed camps in Jarablus
cluster Al Jabal and Al Khames are still under ban to enter any kind of humanitarian aid and the
enumerator was prohibited from entering the cluster or meeting the IDPs. In addition, the cluster is still
suffering from the absence of medical points and schools due to the absence of support. It is worth
mentioning that Molhak Dar Alajaza camp within Qah cluster is…..

ACU’s enumerators have assessed 163 camps within ten camp clusters in Northern Syria located in three
governorates Aleppo, Idleb and Lattakia during October 2015. The Northern Hama countryside has
witnessed massive displacement wave since the beginning of the month towards Rural Idleb camps, due
to the deterioration of security situation and the intensification of bombing there.
More than 1,624 new displaced families have reached the camps, part of those families have settled
down in the assessed camps of Atma and Al Karama clusters and the other part stayed within nine newly
established camps most of them in Al Karama cluster. Most of new families had to build rooms roofed
with an insulator due to lack of new tents distributed by humanitarian organizations for the newly
displaced families. The new camps were initially named as following: Al Haneen ila Al Watan, Al Iman
Billah, Al Nahda Al Islamiyah and Mulhak Yasmeen Al Sham within Al Karama cluster.
Al Hadeel camp within Atma cluster and Shuhadaa Kafrnbuda within Qah cluster. Al Huriya wa Al Adala,
Al Ibaa and Sabiroon camps within Salqin cluster. There are other newly established camps but with no
names yet. The humanitarian organizations tried to cover the newly displaced families’ needs by increasing
the amount of provided humanitarian aid including the numbers of food baskets, hygiene and emergency
kits. In spite of this, the humanitarian aid is still insufficient especially number of tents and insulators
needed to contain this…..

within Al Rahma and Al Karama clusters, Atma Cluster has witnessed some changes in camp structure as

the name Al Baraa Camp. As well as, Al Fath Al Ziara Camp joined Atfalona Tonashedokom and Al Bayan
camps, Al Resala and Al Ihsan1 camps merged within Atma Cluster, but the new camp is not stable so far.
The names of some camps have also been changed. Turkish Red Crescent Camp was renamed as Al
Amal Camp within Atma Cluster. Saeduna Camp was renamed as Atfalona Tonashedokom. Um Al Kora
Camp was renamed as Qafelat Al Rahma within Atma Cluster too.
ACU enumerators have faced some difficulties in getting data from information sources, because IDPs’
needs were not met. It is worth mentioning that many tents have burnt within Ikhaa, Kadeemoon,
Qafelat Al Rahma and Shouhada Abdeen camps without casualities. However, the affected families were
not provided with new tents.
Assistance Coordination Unit enumerators could not enter Al Khames and Al Jabal camps within Jarablus
Cluster because of the imposed ban by the Islamic State (ISIL). There is no management in the two
camps and there are no medical points or schools there. The activities of international and local organizations
have stopped since ISIL forces controlled the city. It is important to mention that Teiba ……
