National Association for the Defense of Rights and Freedoms It warns of a humanitarian disaster on the Turkish border
With the onset of the Syrian crisis, which left many humanitarian scenes behind it and the displacement of entire families to the Greek-Turkish borders to escape from the scourge of the ongoing violence there, which allowed the use of the refugee issue by the Turkish regime as a political maneuver at the level of the European Union to gain more money and also try to blackmail the countries of the world to silence For the many crimes that are committed every day in Syria, providing logistical and medical assistance to armed groups such as ISIS and others, as well as using some refugees as mercenaries, they are pushed to Libyan lands to participate in a war that is not theirs, which was confirmed by the arrest of many Syrians who arrived on Libyan lands. Through Turkish Airlines and the use of an old airport to enter a large number of Syrians and use their inhuman conditions to push them into the war in Libya in the clear absence of the international community to hold accountable and arrest the Turkish regime, which commits many war crimes, as if history is repeating itself and we recall the Armenian massacre that the regime committed Turkish in the past.
The National Assembly warns of the exacerbation of the humanitarian crisis for refugees, especially on the Turkish borders after the outbreak of the Covid 19 epidemic, the absence of statistics on disease activity, the announcement of precautionary measures for it, the announcement of the number of the injured transparently and how to deal with the affected cases, which threatens a humanitarian disaster for which the Turkish regime is trying to turn a blind eye to This humanitarian catastrophe is in the absence of accurate statistics and the absence of the necessary health care in such circumstances, and refugees in Turkey suffer from neglect and neglect by the Turkish authorities, as there are nearly four million refugees, and there have been agreements between Turkey and the European Union for several years, under which Turkey obtained Huge budgets to provide care, care, food and medicine for refugees, but during the past three weeks, neither the Turkish media nor the statements of officials mentioned any mention of these refugees, and of course it is expected that these refugees are exposed to the most damage during the pandemic.
It is known that the Turkish authorities have a bitter history of dealing cruelly with refugees at their borders, such as forcibly deporting all refugees after Turkish army forces tore down all the tents set up by asylum seekers there under the pretext of the spread of the Corona virus inside the camp with the aim of forcing refugees to empty the area in an inhuman manner. For the refugees, which left a state of chaos and terror in the hearts of children and women. Aid and relief workers emphasized that conditions in the camps are “unbearable”, and that care, medical care and hygiene are “tragic” in the camps. In order to obtain a meal, a refugee can wait until 3 hours, and they suffer from weakness and health problems, which confirms that the spread of the Corona epidemic is inevitable if the epidemic is not dealt with seriously.
The National Society for Defending Rights and Freedoms calls on the international community to intervene quickly to protect refugees from the outbreak of the Covid 19 epidemic and to set the treatment protocol necessary to treat the epidemic and limit the spread among refugees. It also calls on international organizations concerned with refugee affairs to open an urgent and independent investigation to uncover the circumstances of the crisis and hold those responsible for the absence of health care accountable.
We also call on the World Health Organization, in cooperation with the Refugee Affairs Organization, to establish units within the refugee camps to detect cases of COVID-19 and separate them from the healthy for treatment, and these units shall be independent from the Turkish authorities
