On Dec. 27, Syrian media group Justice for Life Observatory in Deir al-Zor published a report on the challenges facing civilians living in and fleeing from Daesh (ISIS) occupied areas in Deir al-Zor.However, Abdullah, like many displaced from Deir al-Zor, found that his difficulties did not end after he left the province.Those who decide to leave areas occupied by Daesh face serious challenges to doing so. IDPs reported to JFL that families traveling from Deir al-Zor are often detained indefinitely by Syrian regime forces at security checkpoints in Swaida, where they are not given aid but rather forced to buy food and medicine at inflated prices.The greatest density of IDPs from Deir al-Zor is in Idlib province, in western Syria. Many choose to stay in Idlib, which under opposition control, rather than move on to Turkey, where there are more job opportunities, due to the low cost of living in the province. However, IDPs in Idlib have to adjust to unfamiliar customs and foods and they face poor humanitarian conditions.
