A new offensive on Idlib forces more to flee after tens of thousands have already gone

For tens of thousands on the move, the question is 'where to go?'


An ongoing offensive by the Syrian government targeting the largest remaining piece of rebel-held territory in the country has displaced tens of thousands of people in recent weeks as winter weather sets in, and local officials say aid is scarcer than ever.

Many of those on the move in northern Syria's Idlib province have already moved multiple times to escape violence during the country's nearly seven-year-old civil war. They say intense Syrian and Russian airstrikes have caused much of the recent wave of displacement.

Russia has been supporting the government of Syrian president Bashar Al Assad since 2015, and after largely defeating ISIL in eastern Syria in recent months, Mr Al Assad and his allies have turned their attention towards the rebels that control most of Idlib.

Largely rural, Idlib borders Turkey to its north and was one of the first places where rebels took over significant swathes of territory. Most local aid groups estimate that there are more than 200,000 displaced people in the province.

“People are very afraid the regime with the help of Russia might storm Idlib, which contains huge numbers of civilians,” said Ali Abu Hussein, a refugee living in a camp called Al Qatra that he said houses about 700 families. “Were shall we go? We can't think of going to Turkey; the border is closed.”

Mr Abu Hussein is from Qasr Shawi, a village in eastern Hama province near the border with Idlib. He said all of the approximately 100 families from his village had left in mid-November, when the government captured the area.

The 37-year-old farmer and father of three children said his family had moved multiple times since then.

“Every time we flee to one area, the regime advances to that area and then we move again,” he said.

Near-freezing temperature are common in Idlib during the winter. Local groups provide aid on an ad hoc basis.

On Tuesday, Mr Abu Hussein said a local aid group had delivered food, mattresses and clothes, while another had brought some food and coal.

“We are in danger of moving again at any moment. There are already some families in this camp who are leaving towards other camps at the border, even as others arrive at this camp.”

Rayyan Al Ahmad, a representative of local governing councils in eastern Hama, said that while he was visiting Qatra Camp on Monday, 15 new families arrived from other areas.

Mr Al Ahmad said that after delivering some medicine to families in Qatra, he continued on to Atmeh, a camp that sits directly on the Turkish border. Established in 2012, it is Idlib's largest camp, with the lowest estimates putting its population at more than 50,000 people.

“People told me, ‘We want to go to Turkey. We will throw ourselves at the border and let them kill us. We won’t stay if the regime advances',” Mr Al Ahmad said. “Others told me, ‘We will continue to fight until we die, rather than surrender'.”

“Many people have started to move from the southern part of Idlib province to the city of Idlib,” said Mohammed Katoub, a spokesman for the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS), which helps run dozens of medical facilities in the area.

Katoub said SAMS staff estimated at least 30,000 people had moved since the offensive began two weeks ago, with the trend accelerating in recent days.

"The main issue, as usual, is shelter. The governorate is already overloaded with IDPs [internally displaced people]," Mr Katoub said, though he also noted that the bombardment made the work of doctors more difficult and that some basic medical services had been suspended, including a vaccination campaign.

“We have had two attacks on health facilities in the north in the last 48 hours,” he said.

Because of its border with Turkey, whose government has provided military and political support to the rebellion, international aid has regularly reached Idlib. But Muhammed Jafa, a local co-ordinator for aid efforts, said the amount of available supplies had dropped off in recent months.

“Some Qatari organisation have stopped their activity after the Gulf Crisis,” Mr Jafa said, noting that the prolonged nature of the conflict had left many people unable to support themselves. “There are large numbers of orphans and the handicapped who don’t have anyone to help them.”

Mr Jafa said that the presence of Hayat Tahrir Al Sham, a rebel umbrella organisation that is the strongest faction in Idlib, has also affected aid. Some groups within Tahrir Al Sham have links to Al Qaeda.

“Some organisations have restricted their activities to the minimum while others have stopped completely,” Mr Jafa said.

He said that despite the fighting, people fleeing the Syrian government were still arriving in Idlib from other parts of the country as well, either to join family in Idlib or because of fear of retribution by government forces.

"Every day, about 150 families reach the north of Syria coming from the east," Mr Jafa said, referring to areas that were recently recaptured by the government. "We are also receiving Iraqis. We have about 8,000 Iraqi refugees in our areas. They say they are escaping [militias] due to the sectarian conflict in Iraq."

How to invest in gold

Investors can tap into the gold price by purchasing physical jewellery, coins and even gold bars, but these need to be stored safely and possibly insured.

A cheaper and more straightforward way to benefit from gold price growth is to buy an exchange-traded fund (ETF).

Most advisers suggest sticking to “physical” ETFs. These hold actual gold bullion, bars and coins in a vault on investors’ behalf. Others do not hold gold but use derivatives to track the price instead, adding an extra layer of risk. The two biggest physical gold ETFs are SPDR Gold Trust and iShares Gold Trust.

Another way to invest in gold’s success is to buy gold mining stocks, but Mr Gravier says this brings added risks and can be more volatile. “They have a serious downside potential should the price consolidate.”

Mr Kyprianou says gold and gold miners are two different asset classes. “One is a commodity and the other is a company stock, which means they behave differently.”

Mining companies are a business, susceptible to other market forces, such as worker availability, health and safety, strikes, debt levels, and so on. “These have nothing to do with gold at all. It means that some companies will survive, others won’t.”

By contrast, when gold is mined, it just sits in a vault. “It doesn’t even rust, which means it retains its value,” Mr Kyprianou says.

You may already have exposure to gold miners in your portfolio, say, through an international ETF or actively managed mutual fund.

You could spread this risk with an actively managed fund that invests in a spread of gold miners, with the best known being BlackRock Gold & General. It is up an incredible 55 per cent over the past year, and 240 per cent over five years. As always, past performance is no guide to the future.

Most advisers suggest sticking to “physical” ETFs. These hold actual gold bullion, bars and coins in a vault on investors’ behalf. Others do not hold gold but use derivatives to track the price instead, adding an extra layer of risk. The two biggest physical gold ETFs are SPDR Gold Trust and iShares Gold Trust.

Another way to invest in gold’s success is to buy gold mining stocks, but Mr Gravier says this brings added risks and can be more volatile. “They have a serious downside potential should the price consolidate.”

Mr Kyprianou says gold and gold miners are two different asset classes. “One is a commodity and the other is a company stock, which means they behave differently.”

Mining companies are a business, susceptible to other market forces, such as worker availability, health and safety, strikes, debt levels, and so on. “These have nothing to do with gold at all. It means that some companies will survive, others won’t.”

By contrast, when gold is mined, it just sits in a vault. “It doesn’t even rust, which means it retains its value,” Mr Kyprianou says.

You may already have exposure to gold miners in your portfolio, say, through an international ETF or actively managed mutual fund.

You could spread this risk with an actively managed fund that invests in a spread of gold miners, with the best known being BlackRock Gold & General. It is up an incredible 55 per cent over the past year, and 240 per cent over five years. As always, past performance is no guide to the future.

How to invest in gold

Investors can tap into the gold price by purchasing physical jewellery, coins and even gold bars, but these need to be stored safely and possibly insured.

A cheaper and more straightforward way to benefit from gold price growth is to buy an exchange-traded fund (ETF).
