FRESH violence inside a Syrian camp, where some children from TT have been living, has sparked new fears.
On Friday, Newsday was told that close to where a few TT mothers and their children are holed up in the al-Hol camp, a 25-year-old woman from Iraq was attacked with a hammer.
A journalist at the camp, tweeting under the name “Caki,” posted that the attack happened inside the camp on the Kurdish border on Thursday night. Women and children were forced to flee.
The Middle East Eye, an online newspaper, reported that photos have emerged showing the unhealthy conditions in the Kurdish-run camp. A photo of a child asleep, with flies around his mouth and eyes, carries a caption that reads, “One of the Trinidadian children at al-Hol camp whom relatives are trying to bring home.”
