Sharjah 24 – AFP:
Inside a camp teeming with displaced people near the city of Hasakah in northeastern Syria, Yerevan was born five months ago, without her two sisters having the warmth of their home in the city of Ras al-Ain, from which her family fled a year ago due to a widespread Turkish aggression on the region.

Her mother, Wadha Shermukh, 29, explains, from their tent in Washoe Kani camp, which includes displaced Kurds as well as Arabs from the Ras al-Ain area. My daughter, Berivan, was born months ago in the camp. She did not see a house, but a tent.

What would life be like for a child, who was born and raised in a tent?

The Sharmukh family is one of tens of thousands who fled their homes, following a massive attack launched by Turkey with pro-Syrian factions last October, and the attack ended weeks later, with American mediation and an agreement with Russia, after Turkey controlled a 120-kilometer border area extending between Ras al-Ain. (North of Hasaka) and Tal Abyad (north of Raqqa).

Although a large number of the displaced have returned to the predominantly Arab region, others are still suffering in displacement camps, either because they lost their property or because of fear for several reasons.

Displaced Kurds from the region and human rights organizations accuse the pro-Ankara fighters of committing acts of looting, theft, confiscating homes and carrying out executions, similar to what happened in the Kurdish region of Afrin in 2018, after they controlled it.

Despite being Arab, Wadha’s family is worried about returning to Ras al-Ain, fearing that her husband will be accused of “dealing with the Kurds,” during the years of their control over the border area, not to mention the destruction of their home.

She adds that she tries to forget, but how can one forget his home and his life’s effort?

Perhaps the most difficult thing that Wadhah goes through is seeing her three daughters, including Roslyn, who suffers from paralysis in her legs, growing up in a tent.

She explains that the future appears black, and I always think about the future of my daughters if the situation remains the same, and what they will feel if they get out of here and see how people live outside.

She is especially concerned about the future of Roslyn, who sits in her wheelchair and makes every effort to take her to school, fearing that her daughters will not learn like the daughters of their generation.

In a nearby tent, the Kurdish woman Shamsa Abdul Qadir (40 years), a mother of seven, explains that she does not imagine herself living the rest of her life in the camp, and adds in Kurdish language that we think day and night about returning to our homes in Ras al-Ain, I would rather die in my town than live In this camp, it is more like a grave, but at the same time, it is afraid to return to live under the control of the Turkish forces and their affiliated factions, describing them as mercenaries.

Last month, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights warned of the increasing level of violence and crime in the areas controlled by the Turkish forces, and the possibility of war crimes committed by pro-Ankara factions.

It announced that it documented a disturbing pattern of grave violations, with increasing killings, kidnappings, confiscation of property and forced evictions, and pointed out that the factions had seized homes, lands and properties and looted them without any apparent military necessity.

Salima Muhammad, 42, abandoned the idea of ​​returning to Ras al-Ain, where her home was destroyed, and began preparing equipment to build a separate kitchen from her tent, which is crowded with 14 members of her family. There are no longer homes, or walls, or even doors and windows.

And you ask heartily, what does the future mean if we are not among our people and on our land? However, reports of kidnappings and abuses prevent the return.

Gamrah, 65, who is displaced from the countryside of Ras al-Ain, shares the same concerns. In the tent, where her grandchildren surround her, Gamrah removes a key from a small bag, and says I brought my home key, and adds if I die before I return, I want them to bury this key with me.
