Committee Pops in Handarat Camp for Palestinian Refugees to Work Out Power Crisis

Activists in Handarat Camp for Palestinian refugees said a committee was dispatched by Aleppo’s Power Company to set a plan for operating electricity in the area and identifying adequate zones to install power poles.

The activists added that maintenance works are to be kick-started sometime soon as part of underway attempts to rehabilitate infrastructure and reconstruct destroyed premises, pending the return of displaced families to their homes.

Handarat Camp (also called Ein AlTel Camp) is located to the northeast of Aleppo’s Hill, overseeing the Turkey-bound traffic lanes. It stands on a rocky hill and is situated some 13 kilometers away from the city center.

Heavy shelling on Handarat and bloody shootouts between the government forces and the opposition outfits resulted in huge material damage. Deadly onslaughts launched on the camp on April 27, 2013, sparked a wave of mass deportation, with dozens of civilians fleeing their homes in the hunt for a safer shelter.

According to data by the General Commission of Arab Palestinian Refugees in Syria, some 8,000 Palestinian refugees used to take shelter in Handarat Camp. Only 175 displaced families returned to the camp following the heavy onslaughts launched by the Syrian government battalions.
