A container city for 10,000 Syrians is being built on the outskirts of Aleppo by Turkish aid organization Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), the organization announced on Monday. A thousand tents will also be set up as part of the camp in the village of Sicco in the district of Azez. The camp will include a refectory, mosque, health center and other social facilities. IHH has continued humanitarian aid for Syrian civilians since the start of the civil war which entered its fourth year in March, IHH Kilis Coordinator Erhan Yemelek told Anadolu Agency. "Last year, we established a camp of 700 containers in the Shemmarin region of Azaz town, Aleppo. Now we are establishing a new camp in Syria including a thousand of tent." Syria has been gripped by civil war since March, 2011. Last month, the Syrian Network for Human Rights reported that more than 133,000 people had been killed in regime attacks. The fighting has also internally displaced more than 6.5 million people. An additional 2.5 million are registered as refugees in the neighboring countries of Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq.
Meanwhile the Syrian Coalition welcomed on Friday the U.N. Security Council’s adoption of a resolution that targets militant groups in Iraq and Syria. The Syrian Coalition's special representative to the U.N., Najib Ghadbian, called in a written statement Friday for "targeted airstrikes in Syria" to end violence by the Assad regime in the country.
