The Displacement of the Euphrates, the invisible name of SDF


The displacement of the Euphrates should be the real name of the military campaign launched by the Syrian Democratic Forces. SDF launched their military campaign under the name (Wrath of the Euphrates) in order to expel ISIS out of Raqqa province. The first level of this campaign was done and led to hundreds of killed civilians, thousands of displaced ones and tens of villages that have been washed away entirely under the pretext of fighting ISIS.
Two months of (The Euphrates Shield) were very similar to three years of ISIS. Civilians were the victims of the first by displacing and the second by killing, and in both cases the situation is no less bad.
Fifty thousand civilians in the northern countryside were the victims of the (fake) liberation; most of them live now in camps near Ein Essa and some others have taken the roads as homes.

Ein Essa camp, which was established by local civilians in the granaries, does not have the minimum life necessities. Abu Abdullah said:” When the wind gets stronger, we put it down to the ground and lie inside it after putting stones over it, this is how our grandparents used to do and now in 2017 we are doing the same”.

Abu Abdullah added:” I am sixty years old now; this is the first time in my life I get out of my house and my land. Do you believe that even when the battle between the regime army and the Free Syrian Army took place I did not leave my house؟? And now I have been forced to get out of my village.”

People here do not have anything, even the tents are torn, and you cannot say that they need something; they need everything, absolutely everything.
When going back to Tal Abyad on the highway, you can find families staying on the sides of the road; people have taken their vehicles as houses and they are banned from entering their city, Tal Abyad, under the pretext of being ISIS supporters which is all bunch of lies. They cannot enter the city unless they get a sponsor from someone related to the SDF.

You cannot count those displaced people, you cannot serve them where they are, and the only way to solve their problem is to get them back to their houses to their lands and properties.

Between the separatist advance and the terrorist group retreat lots and lots of innocent civilians loses their houses, their lives and their lands. This is all in the countryside, where the population density is not that big, so what about the city of Raqqa where hundreds of thousands of civilians are now waiting for their mysterious fate, not knowing if they are now spending their last days in their houses, lands and city.
