Snakes and scorpions threaten lives of the displaced in Idlib camps


Displaced Syrians in Idlib countryside are at risk of snakes and scorpions repeated sneaking into their tents in Harbnoush Camp. Many camps in Idlib are located in mountainous areas, which is the natural habitat for reptiles.

Some camps are close to landfills and agricultural lands far from hospitals and healthcare centers. The lack of protective gears, antivenins, and injections in the majority of the camps exacerbated residents’ suffering.

Dozens of deaths from bites by snakes and scorpions are annually reported in displaced camps in Syria.
