THE STORY - They come from Syria, looking for a refuge. But the trip turned out to be hell: they drifted into the Mediterranean for several days before being intercepted by the Italian Coast Guard. As the UN High Commissioner for Refugees denounced, the conditions of those who were saved and who were rescued in Pozzallo are dramatic. Those who did not make it presumably died of hunger and thirst: two children, a twelve year old and three women: among them, the mother and grandmother of some children who were saved. According to UNHCR data, the victims among sea migrants in 2022 have thus become 1200.
