"Politicizing humanitarian file" ...Security Council resolution threatens thousands of displaced Syrians.

Northeast of Syria is home to thousands of displaced, who are living in difficult conditions due to a Security Council resolution that restricted the entry of humanitarian aid from one crossing controlled by Turkey's mercenaries, after the closure of the Tel Koçber crossing in the northeast areas of Syria.

The Autonomous Administration of the North and East of Syria, AANES has embraced hundreds of thousands of displaced from various Syrian regions who fled the war that erupted years ago, to find them as a safe haven in the midst of ongoing conflicts, and to settle in camps or shelters

The AANES has devoted all its capabilities for providing assistance to all displaced at the camps and other places, from the cities and towns of northeast of Syria.

According to the statistics of the Office for Displaced and Refugee Affairs in northeast of Syria, there are 17 camps, 10 official camps are spread in the AANES areas, namely, "Newroz Camp, Roj Camp, Al-Hol Camp, Al-Arisha Camp, Washokani Camp, Tal Al-Saman Camp, Mahmoudiyah Camp, Jideidet Al-Hamar camp, east and west Manbij camp.

In addition to a number of random camps, which were established by the displaced people, most of them are scattered on the banks of the Euphrates River.

The number of residents of the 17 camps officially registered, according to the camp administration statistics, reached 111,265 IDPs and refugees, among 26,317 families.

While about a thousand families live in informal settlements.

The negative effects of suffering intensify with the days

As a result of preventing the aid, the displaced and internally displaced persons are suffering from poor living and health conditions

"The healthy reality in the camp for the displaced is not good; there are not enough treatments and food baskets for families. We have no income, and prices have become very expensive. "

For the 15th time, Moscow is using veto against the interests of the Syrians

On January 10 of the current year, the United Nations issued a resolution to close the Tel Koçber (Al-Yarubiya) crossing in the far north and east of Syria with Iraq after Russia and China used the veto in the Security Council against the resolution that provided for the extension of a mechanism of the delivery of aid across the border to Syria. According to the findings of the Security Council, it was decided to enter aid only through Bab al-Hawa crossing, which is controlled by the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries.

It is the fifteenth veto Moscow has used at the United Nations since the outbreak of the Syrian crisis in 2011.

This decision reflects negatively on the humanitarian and health situation in the regions of northeast of Syria, increases the burdens of the AANES in managing the affairs of the displaced and raises fears of the region of being exposed to a humanitarian disaster.

The closure of the Tel Koçber crossing ... causes a humanitarian catastrophe for the displaced

The Tel Koçber crossing is one of the most important border crossings that were used by the World Health Organization to bring aid to northern Syria.

According to the World Health Organization, the northeast regions of Syria have not received any support from alternative channels, and according to United Nations reports, 1.3 million people benefit from this crossing.

With the repercussions of the closure of the Tel Koçber / Al-Yarubia crossing, which is the only outlet for the northeast of regions of Syria, over the aid movement, this has led to a tightening of the siege on northeast of Syria, as well as its suffering from the consequences of the Caesar Act, which came into effect on June 17.

"Politicizing the humanitarian file"

Farhad Hamo, the Co-chair of the Humanitarian Affairs Office in northeast of Syria,said that the Security Council's resolution is politicizing the humanitarian file, saying: "Closing the Tel Koçber crossing and maintaining the Bab al-Hawa crossing is considered politicization of the humanitarian file and the aid movement."

He added: "We call on the relevant countries and the United Nations to neutralize humanitarian action, from the goals and political pressures, as Turkey practically burned crops in northern and eastern Syria, and used water as a tool of war against the people, these amount to war crimes."

Hamo also called on the concerned countries to introduce aid to Syria not to give Turkey additional tools, or new legitimacy, to use it against the people of northeast of Syria.

For his part, political activist Munzir Muhammad held Russia the consequences of the difficult circumstances that the Security Council resolution will leave behind and said: "Russia's use of the veto against the Tel Koçber crossing came to implement its policies against the regions of northeast of Syria, and as a step to support Turkey, the Syrian government and Iran, and an attempt to form popular pressure against the administration to give in to their terms. "

He pointed out that Russia did not use the veto to close the Bab Al-Hawa crossing, as it did during the closure of the Tel Koçber crossing, and attributed the reason to the existence of some Russian-Turkish closeness regarding the Syrian crisis.

Turkey exploits its rapprochement with Russia and those who control Bab al-Hawa are mercenaries

He added, "Turkey is taking advantage of its rapprochement with Russia, to achieve its occupation ambitions in northeast of Syria."

He also added, "The closure of the Tel Koçber crossing comes in favor of the Syrian government as well to raise its economy, such as gas, oil, and wheat, and the economic basket in northern and eastern Syria is not under the control of the Syrian government, that is why the Russian-Turkish pressure on northeast Syria serves the Syrian government."

Muhammad explained that if the aid was entered through the Bab Al-Hawa crossing and promoted in the media, there will be no transparency about the mechanism of organizing the work, saying "How far are the donor countries sure to deliver this aid to the people, they do not seem important to this matter, because the military structure of the administrative and financial affairs of this region are feudal, they are mercenaries and this will have negative effects.
