Turkish municipality built a neighborhood with 450 briquette houses in Syria

Istanbul’s Bağcılar district municipality came forward to ease the humanitarian catastrophe in Idlib, where millions of people who fled their homes due to the Bashar Assad regime’s attacks live in overcrowded tent camps or in open spaces. The municipality contributed to the Humanitarian Relief Foundation’s (IHH) briquette homes project. As part of the “Bağcılar Neighborhood” project, which was launched in January 2020 in the rural Soran region, the construction of 450 briquette houses has been completed. The 1+1, 24-square-meter (258.34 square feet) are made of durable materials. Families from Idlib, who were victims of war, have now been placed in all 450 houses. Families leaving the tents are happy to have a good life in their new homes.
