Qamishli, Syria – Local sources in Hilaliya neighbourhood in Qamishli city, northeast of Syria, reported that PYD-linked People’s House (Mala Gel) asked families who resorted to Qamishli from other war-torn Syrian cities to leave Hilaliyah neighbourhood and move to Hakima camp near Derik city, east of Qamishli.

Aziz Osman, civil activist in Qamishli, told ARA News that the head of Hilaliya neighbourhood (appointed by the People’s House, an organization affiliated with the Democratic Union Party PYD) had earlier asked the displaced Syrian families who currently based in the neighbourhood to leave Hilaliya and resort to Hakima camp, clarifying that they should leave within days.

“Some of the families appealed to the Syrian National Council (KNC) –rival political body to PYD– to help them stay in Qamishli,” Osman said. “However, they didn’t receive any help yet, while the pressures of the PYD-linked People’s House mount against them. They are obliged to leave at the end, as all local organizations seem unable to take any actions to help them.”

Hakima camp is the first camp of its kind to be established in Syria’s Kurdish region to shelter the internally displaced Syrian families. The camp was founded by decision of the PYD-led self-administration in northern Syria.
