EAST GHOUTA, Syria – East Ghouta residents staying at the al-Duweir camp near Damascus on Saturday, recounted the dire living conditions they fled from.

Footage from the al-Duweir camp shows people receiving food and supplies, as well as sleeping inside a hall.

One man said food and medicine were a rare commodity and aid distribution was uneven in East Ghouta, resulting in malnutrition and health hazards.

“Life was unbearable in Ghouta: no electricity, no water, no aid. The aid amounted to 80 kilos, but we had one or two kilos,” another resident recalled.
