Syria: *EXCLUSIVE* look into al-Hol refugee camp amid Turkey offensive

Syrian Arab Republic, al-Hol camp
October 18, 2019 at 17:10 GMT +00:00 · Published

Exclusive footage filmed for Ruptly on Wednesday offers a unique look into al-Hol refugee camp in northern Syria amid then-ongoing Turkish military operation.

Footage shows the camp still heavily populated by women and children, many believed to be the family members of the so-called Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants. Al-hol’s hospital appears to be functional. A vehicle bearing the Syrian Red Crescent symbol is also seen at the camp.

On Thursday, US Vice President Mike Pence announced a five-day ceasefire in Turkey's military offensive, dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring,' which began on October 9, days after the White House announced a withdrawal of US troops from the area. Ankara said the aim of the offensive was to create a 'safe zone' cleared of Kurdish groups.
