5 years after the Massacre of Abdul Qadir al-Husseini Mosque: The residents of Yarmouk are victims of the siege imposed by the Syrian regime and ISIS groups control the camp

The Syrian regime and the Palestinian factions affiliated to it, continue to prevent thousands of displaced Palestinians from returning to their homes in Yarmouk camp, south of Damascus, after 5 years of constant displacement.

The tragedy of Yarmouk camp began since 2012, when it was forced into the Syrian conflict because of its important geographical location in regard to the capital, Damascus.

At the beginning of the events in Syria, the camp was subjected to a barrage of missiles, putting its residents’ lives at risk, when Al-Al-Ja'una street was bombarded on the 2nd of August 2012, leading to a massacre in the street in which 20 Palestinian refugees died.

On 16/12/2012, the Syrian regime bombarded the Abdul Qadir al-Husseini Mosque and Al-Faluja School using warplanes, resulting in dozens of casualties and injuries. Consequently, the residents of Yarmouk hurriedly packed their bags, and were displaced from their camp together with thousands of Syrian residents of the camp.

More than 80% of Yarmouk camp’s residents immigrated, while 20 thousand refugees chose not to leave and to hold on, to avoid the repetition of their tragedy again. However, the Syrian regime and the Palestinian factions affiliated to it, imposed a partial siege on Yarmouk camp, on 18/12/2013, followed by a complete siege on 18/07/2014. At that time, the people of Yarmouk camp experienced the most severe forms of humanitarian suffering, due to the unavailability of the basic elements of humanitarian life in the camp, forcing them to eat poisonous plants, as well as cats and dogs in order to survive. Also, food and medicine were banned from entering the camp, in addition to the regime deliberately cutting off water, electricity and communications completely from its population on, 08/09/2014.

ISIS’s control over large areas of Yarmouk camp, since the beginning of April 2015, increased the suffering of those remaining inside the camp. ISIS is tightening its procedures on the residents, over the various facets of life, especially regarding their education and lifestyle.

The Action Group recorded the death of 1333 residents of Yarmouk camp during the war, in addition to 200 martyrs as a result of the siege and lack of medical care.
