The co-chair of the Executive Council of the Autonomous Administration(AA) of North and East Syria confirmed that, in coordination with the Deir ez-Zor Civil Council, they are working on rehabilitating the infrastructure and securing the basic needs of the newly liberated rural people of Deir ez-Zor. He pointed out that the volume of relief aid to the Hole camp does not meet the required level for numbers for its residents.

The areas under the control of mercenaries, especially in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor, have been destroyed especially, the facilities and infrastructure as a result of mercenary practices during the years of their control, as well as the region has been destroyed as a result of the liberation carried out by SDF in coordination with the Global Coalition.

This situation prompted the AA to take measures to support those areas, in preparation for the return of the people to them, the Executive, the co-chair of the Executive Council, Abdul Hamid al-Mehbash, said during an interview conducted by the Hawar News Agency(ANHA) that the AA had put plans and programs in coordination with the Civil Administration in Deir ez-Zor for the rehabilitation of the infrastructures before the Syrian Democratic Forces announced the liberation of the last geographical enclave occupied by Daesh.

It is noteworthy that the Syrian Democratic Forces(SDF) announced the elimination of Daesh geographically in northern and eastern Syria on 23 March.

He explained that the Executive Body of AA held a series of meetings during the month of February with the elders and dignitaries of the Deir ez-Zor and the Civil Administration of Deir ez-Zor and the bodies that deal with services, the Health Body, local administrations and municipalities, Economy and Agriculture, Education, to discuss the services required by the regions, where the military operations were carried out at that time (Hajin, Sosa, Shafa, al-Bagouz), to restore services to them and to start working with the declaration of victory in preparation for the return of the people.

He explained that during these meetings, similar committees were asked to prepare urgent projects for quick and urgent intervention after the declaration of liberation, taking into consideration the essential services and vital life of the citizen, such as drinking water, health centers, bakeries and irrigation projects, and the schools for the return of students who had been denied education for more than five years.

Al-Mehbash confirmed that the Autonomous Administration had spent the entire amount of funds for the Deir Ez-Zor Civil Administration after the studies were prepared by the relevant committees and that the amounts allocated to rehabilitate the infrastructure of the newly liberated areas are supported by AA of the North and East of Syria, to the Democratic Civil Administration in Deir ez-Zor.

Al-Mehbash promised to implement and complete these projects in the near future.

"Providing the basic needs of the inhabitants of al-Hole camp requires international support to help AA in their duties towards the displaced people there," he concluded.
