Health Situation Takes Turn for Worse in Yarmouk Camp

The health situation in Yarmouk Camp, in Damascus, has gone sharply downhill as hundreds of civilian residents sustained life-threatening diseases. All hospitals and clinics in the camp, except for the under-equipped Palestine Hospital, have gone out of operation due to the acute shortage in medical stuff and specialized practitioners as a result of the tough blockade slapped by the regime army and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command (PFLP-GC) for 1,362 days in a row.

3,000 to 5,000 civilians have been trapped inside the shelter while 187 refugees died as a result of undernourishment and medical neglect.

ISIS militias have grabbed hold of large areas of Yarmouk Camp since early April 2015, in cooperation with AlNusra Front battalion. As a result, thousands of trapped civilians fled to nearby towns for fear of being killed by ISIS.
