DeirEzzor24 exclusive report:
The eastern regions of Syria, including Deir Ezzor, have recently witnessed the spread of the phenomenon of selling land and property, in conjunction with the high rate of migration from the region’s residents towards Turkey and Europe.
The correspondent of DeirEzzor24 network said that a good segment of Deir Ezzor residents sold lands at low prices in order to secure immigration expenses for their children. The price of one dunam in the Badia ranged, according to its location, between 50 and 300 thousand Syrian pounds, while the price of a dunam in the countryside varied between five and 100 million, according to its location and importance.
The reporter added that the people resorted to other ways to secure travel costs, such as selling their shops and homes, or what they owned of cars, agricultural equipment and other properties.
According to civil sources, the reasons for the growing phenomenon of migration for the region’s youth range from the deterioration of the living situation, the outrageous high prices, desertion from military service and insecurity in the eastern governorates of Syria in general.
The cost of traveling to Turkey through smuggling routes ranged between 800 to 1,500 US dollars per person, to the Turkish state of Urfa, while the cost of migration to European countries ranged between 5,000 to 10,000 dollars per person, depending on the smuggling routes.
