A humanitarian crisis is looming on the horizon and hundreds of thousands of people fleeing the last bastion where the militants of the Da'ash organization are holed up in the town of Al-Bagouz in northeastern Syria .
The Washington Post quoted a grim picture of the fate of more than 73,000 people, mostly women and children, crammed with the Al-Houl camp east of Hasaka.
Tens of thousands of people poured into the camp to escape heavy fighting in the town of Al-Bagouz between militants of the Da'ash organization and Syria's democratic forces after weeks of fighting.
"The camp is a sea of white tents, vast, and the wounded are often left without treatment, while thousands more suffer from malnutrition," the paper said.
The camp has 3 mobile clinics, while local hospitals are crowded with patients and seriously injured by the fighting over the course of weeks.
Often, painkillers or antibiotics are given to those suffering from non-serious injuries.
According to the newspaper, 31 people died last week on their way to the camp, or soon after they arrived due to injuries caused by injuries or malnutrition, bringing the number of deaths of these cases to 217 people.
Along the dirt roads of the camp, which have been turned over by heavy rains, those who have lost their limbs struggle to walk without wheel chairs or crutches.
Children, who make up 65 per cent of the camp's population, transport the injured or elderly relatives in wooden carts.
The Syrian Democratic forces, foreign women and children who have left the Baguoz, are isolated in a separate annex inside the camp and are monitored by the guards accompanying them as they travel through the camp. This week, the United Nations
announced an additional $ 4.3 million to assist residents of the Hol camp, including tents, blankets, hygiene kits and other medical supplies. Campers fear that there will be problems among thousands of refugees, especially the spread of infectious diseases and sexual violence against minors.
