Over 140,000 Syrians have been displaced in just 3 days by air and ground attacks from Syrian and Russian forces in Syria’s northwest this past week. Some 700,000 people have fled from the region since December, when the Syrian government launched its latest offensive against the opposition. Russian and Syrian warplanes have repeatedly bombed hospitals and other civilian sites, as well as fleeing families on the road.
The UN has described this displacement as one of the worst humanitarian crises in Syria's nearly nine-year-long civil war. These newly uprooted Syrians face crowded refugee camps and harsh weather. Aid organizations are struggling to provide them with shelter, food and warm clothes. The horrific crisis is deepening by the minute and the rest of the world seems indifferent to the plight of the Syrian people.
3 Generations will continue to record the stories of Syrian refugees as we have been since 2013. We are proud of our steadfast coverage of this human rights catastrophe which includes award-winning short and feature films. It is important that we continue to tell these stories so that the world does not forget the suffering and destruction of this once vital and culturally rich people.
