The conflict in Sülük town and surrounding villages in Syria forced 10.000 Syrians to flee and take shelter in Urfa.

IHH Urfa Branch distributed food and clean water to the Syrian refugees most of whom are women and children.

Two children died from thirst

IHH Urfa Branch representative Mr. Behçet Atilla reported that they, as IHH mobile team, immediately went to Zenginova village located at zero point to Akçakale-Ceylanpınar border.

Following the clashes, around ten thousand people crossed the border at the temporary border checkpointset up in the village and entered Urfa. Atilla described the following scene he witnessed:

It was a humanitarian tragedy. Women, children, elderly were distraught and suffering from thirst. If what they told me is true two children died of thirst while waiting to cross the border three days ago. We just bought a tank of clean packed water and distributed them to the refugees in the village. We have also distributed baby formula. The crowd that happened while distributing water reminded me Dadaat camp that I have visited in 2011 in Somalia.”
