This paper sheds light on two random camps and one organized one.
Al Ashawi Camp:
It is located in Mhemeeda village in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor, which is held by Syria Democratic Forces (SDF).
The camp includes thirty tents that host about forty families who fled from Al Shola town, which is located on the road of Deir Ezzor – Damascus, and Al Hawayej village, which is located in the south of Euphrates river.

The IDPs arrived in this camp six month ago, following the control of government forces on their areas.
There is no organization/agency supervising the camp or providing the IDPs any sort of aid. The IDPs suffer from lack of healthcare and schools. It should be mentioned that the closest hospital to the camp is located about 15km, and the closest school is located about 2km.
Most IDPs fear from returning to their areas due to government forces control on them since the forces did not give IDPs any sort of guarantee not to be arrested. The government forces arrested all young men who returned to those areas in order to be recruited within their factions.
Hawayej Theyab Camp:
It is located in the village of Hawayej Theyab in the north of Euphrates river, in Al Kasra sub-district. It is located nearby the houses of Najm Al Salman families in the village.
The camp includes twenty tents that host twenty-seven families who fled Al Shola village seven months ago, along with IDPs from Zghair and Al Hawayej due to government forces control.
