Displaced people fleeing the fighting quarters arrive in random order at the Shuhada al Furnaj primary school. We are about ten kilometers from the smoke and the noise of the bombs. They are generally family groups with many small children. Often the father or an uncle, however a man of the house able to use a weapon, remains on guard in the abandoned house. We fear the looting by the same fighters in the two camps, says among the many Sadeg Mathi, 35, just escaped here with his wife and eight children. One of his brothers risks death under the bombs, but he remained hidden in the cellar to watch over the gangs of thieves, often in uniform, operating in the no man's land.
