   (Zaman Al Wasl)- Iman Layla, a displaced infant form Eastern Ghouta suburbs, died of cold in a makeshifts camp near northern Afrin city, medics said Thursday.

Iman was suffering from a respiratory infection due to the cold winter that left the stranded refugees in a tragic situation.

Dr. Hussam Adnan, the director of Afrin hospital, said on his Facebook page that father of Iman had walked for an hour carrying his daughter from his camp to the hospital. "He didn’t not know that she passed away.. all what he wanted that her heart would beat again," Adnan added.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) said 167 Syrian citizens, including 77 children, have died due to the cold in Syria since March 2011, appealing for relief for nearly 700,000 recently forcibly displaced persons due to the ongoing Russian-led regime offensive in northwestern Syria. 
    
Between March 2011 and January 31, 2020, the report documents the deaths of 167 civilians due to the cold in Syria, including 77 children and 18 women.

The report includes the distribution of the death toll according to the practices of the parties that caused the people’s death, with 146 of these people dying at the hands of Syrian Regime forces, including 25 who died in the regime’s prisons also as a result of the cold, with the report also attributing responsibility for the death of 11 civilians due to cold to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, and five more deaths as a result of cold to ISIS, while five others died of cold while migrating to Europe. 
  
Nearly half a million people have been killed and millions displaced in Syria's long-running civil war, which erupted in 2011 in the form of anti-government protests amid Arab Spring uprisings and eventually turned into an armed insurgency.
