More than 17 thousand leishmaniasis cases in Tell Abyad and Ras Al-ain,

This area is under the authority of the Turkish-backed opposition sandflies spread in northern Syria, because of poverty and lack of sanitation Leishmaniasis is caused by infection with Leishmania parasites, which are spread by the bite of phlebotomine sand flies.
