Long recovery ahead in former Syria rebel enclave eastern Ghouta

Hunkered near one of Syria’s hottest front lines for seven years, the eastern Ghouta district of Ein Terma sustained more damage than most areas in the conflict. Its markets are now full and children throng the streets where shells were falling a year ago. But for the people who have returned to live there, the recovery is gradual. As the eighth anniversary of the civil war arrives this week, Ein Terma’s battered streets attest to the long road ahead for Syria’s war-smashed towns and cities. Many inhabitants have lost neighbours, friends or relatives as the population scattered through years of conflict. Despite government work, rubble still clogs many streets and the water and electricity supply is only partial. Jobs are scarce, and for people who stayed in the area when it was controlled by the rebels, family paperwork for births and deaths in that period must be done anew.Samiha Fares and her five children left their home in 2012, early in the war, as rebels gained control over the district. She had been working for the Ein Terma municipal government and the rebels threatened her children and installed rockets on the roof of her house.
