With the Syrian regime’s continuous bombardments and airstrikes on southwestern Daraa, thousands of displaced civilians are trying to escape to safety away from the military operations and near the Jordanian border and the areas close to the occupied Golan Heights.
Some of the displaced civilians sought shelter at thehomes of family and friends, while others took shelter in schools. Even then, a large number of the displaced were left stranded in the bushes without any shelter.
The United Nations estimated the number of those displaced near the Jordanian border at 45,000, while the number of the displaced from all areas in Daraa is far more than the UN figure.
According to local sources, some of the displaced took shelter in areas close to the occupied Golan Heights as the Syrian regime avoided shelling this area which is close to Israel.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights quoted sources as saying that the Syrian regime is banning civilians from entering areas under its control, and neither is it allowing them to go to the capital Damascus by putting barracks and security checkpoints on the roads and imposing fines of up to $500 on those wanting to enter areas under Bashar Assad’s control.
