Syrian Authorities Block Access of Yarmouk Returnees to Their Homes

A number of activists and residents attempting to reach their homes in Yarmouk Camp have been denied access into the area by Syrian government troops deployed at the main entrances to the camp.

The residents said the government forces stipulated that an admission permit be issued by the concerned branches set up in Street 30 and residence documents be handed over to local authorities.

Those who received an entry permit were ordered to leave the camp by 05:00 p.m. in order not be arrested and prosecuted.

Statements released sometime earlier by Syrian officials and Palestinian leaders in Damascus pointed out that Yarmouk Camp will not undergo a comprehensive rehabilitation process and that the residents will be allowed a safe return to their homes shortly. However, the promise has never been made true and the residents have been left with a mysterious fate.

The Syrian government recaptured Yarmouk Camp and other zones south of Damascus following a 33-day military operation launched on April 19, 2018, leaving 33 civilians dead and dozens more injured. Massive destruction had been wrought on civilian property and structures in the area. 90% of civilian homes had also been burglarized.
