A village whose residents are all women has been established in al-Darbasiyah in northeastern Syria after two years of work, according to Snack Syrian.

The village of Jinwar was officially inaugurated on Sunday (November 25) as part of celebrations to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Supervisor of the village Rumat Hafal said that 30 houses have been built, which will become homes for women from Shadadi, Tal Tamar, Kobani, and al-Darbasiyah.

Most of the women are mothers who are widows or are divorced, according to the village’s supervisor.

“It is not just for Kurdish women. It is going to be an warm environment for every woman who wants to live there,” Snack Syria quoted Hafal as saying.

There are a medical clinic, a school for children, and a garden in the village, according to the Snack Syrian report. The women plan to use medicinal herbs to aid in the treatment of ailments, Hafal said.

“Men will be able to visit the village and meet with their relatives, but they will not be allowed to stay,” she added.
