The Group pointed out that the population density is very high inside the camps, in addition to the lack of hygiene and inadequate sanitary conditions, which pose a great threat to the safety of the displaced.

The Group called on the international community and international institutions based on humanitarian work in northwestern Syria to intervene more through financial and logistical support for organizations operating in northwestern Syria.
