Economic suffering of thousands of displaced Palestinian families to Qudsaya continues

In the town of Qudsaya in the suburbs of Damascus, live approximately 6000 Palestinian families who were displaced to the town, under harsh living conditions due to the rising living costs, including home rentals, the high prices for living and the widespread of unemployment among them, as well as the exploitation of some homeowners on the other hand.

A Palestinian refugee told the Action Group’s reporter that after opening of the Qudsaya Road and lifting the siege on it, the house rents rose and the exploitation of some homeowners increased. House rents ranged from almost free prices to 25 thousand Syrian pounds, rising to 35 thousand Syrian pounds to the unfurnished houses and 70 thousand pounds for furnished houses, (on average).

Our reporter added, according to one of those displaced to the town, that the high prices of rent has made the state of the majority of people very bad. Some house owners who had one depended on tenants to stay in their homes to protect them, are now asking the tenants to leave for any excuses, in order to increase the price of the house.

Others preferred the two and a half-year siege in Qudsaya than the current state of the town, since trying to find a house now is the most difficult task these days due to the influx of people to the area, which has cheaper rents than the capital. In the months of the siege, buying food necessities at double prices was less expensive than home rents today.

In addition to this suffering is the scarcity of assistance to the displaced Palestinians, under the pretext that it is a safe area. Most of the displaced Palestinian families of the town of Qudsaya had been displaced from Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian Refugees, due to the strict siege imposed by the regime’s army and the Popular Front-General Command groups on the camp.
