Palestinian Refugees in AlShabiba Camp Launch Cry for Help

The Shabiba refugee camp, north of Syria, has run out of bread and other much-needed items for the eighth day running after the camp administration opted for castigatory measures against the displaced families in response to protest moves recently staged in the area.

The displaced families said in soundtracks that the administration has turned the camp into an open-air prison, blocking their access to food and water. The residents added that large quantities of food items are kept in the storeroom.

The residents said the administration ruled that one meal only be handed over to them between 01:00 and 02:00 p.m. The measure implies that dozens of schoolchildren and residents working outside of the camp will not be able to receive foodstuff after 02:00 p.m.

The residents launched calls for securing bread loafs to their families and children, voicing their refusal to receive the meals delivered by local staff members in protest at the arbitrary crackdowns pursued by the administration.

A displaced resident said the administration threw the meals to pets, blocked access out of the camp, and banned the entry of foodstuff into refugee tents.

Staff members reportedly seized blankets and mattresses, before they backtracked following pressure from the residents.

The displaced families also continue to rail against the lack of heating kit and accuse Maram Association of turning its back on their calamitous conditions and preventing them from urgently-needed items.

An activist said that 14 tents risk to be uprooted by violent winds and that nine boilers installed in those tents have gone out of operation. The camp administration took away gas heaters used by civilians to keep their children warm.

Speaking with AGPS by phone, the administration denied the allegations, saying staff have been doing their best to meet the refugees’ needs.

Admins added that the rallies recently held by the displaced refugees came following a decision prohibiting the transfer of meals from the restaurant to the tents in order to preserve public hygiene and reduce the propagation of rats in the area.

Some 200 displaced families, among them 120 Palestinian families, 234 children below the age of 10, and 97 children aged between 11 and 16, have been taking shelter in AlShabiba Camp.
