Since October 9, Médecins Sans Frontières has evacuated international staff from Ain Issa, Al Hol, Tal Abyad, Tal Tamer, Tal Kocher/Al Yaarubiyah, Kobane/Ain Al Arab, and Raqqa city.
Prior to evacuation, our teams in In Tal Tamar were providing blankets, emergency food rations, bottled water, and soap to thousands of people fleeing the conflict with little more than the clothes on their backs.
On October 13, dozens of people wounded in an airstrike were brought to Tal Tamer hospital. In Ain Issa town, our teams witnessed the population fleeing homes on foot and seeking safety from the conflict.
We will continue to support our colleagues remotely and explore all possible options to deliver assistance to the people in northeast Syria, despite the constraints. Our teams are still present in northwest Syria.
