A Mortar Shell Fell on the Yarmouk Camp

A mortar shell was dropped beside Halawa Hospital in Yarmouk causing no casualties, while witnesses reported that there is a foul smell emitted after the fall of the shell, passers-by could not afford it.

The remaining residents of Yarmouk are complaining of continued water cuts all around the camp for (309) days respectively, forcing them to go to the adjacent areas of the camp and wait for long hours in order to get some liters of drinking water.

And according to a woman trapped inside the camp to our correspondent that they are finding it very difficult to find water, where they are forced to risk their lives and go on foot to Al Qadam area adjacent to the camp in order to get drinking water.

She added that the crisis traders are taking advantage of the lack of water and sell it to residents with expensive prices, while the price of a water tank (5 drums) has reached 1,000 Syrian pounds.

It was mentioned that ISIS theft for more than three thousand liters of water that were allocated to the work of water pumps, which are the main source of drinking water and the use of people, and the continuation of Syrian authorities to stop feeding the camp over the water network coming from neighboring areas on 9th of September 2014, has exacerbated the crises in water and hygiene.
