UNRWA condemns attack on Neirab camp and refugees’ deaths

In a statement released on May 16, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) condemned the rocket attack on Neirab camp in Aleppo that killed at least ten civilians and wounded more than 30 others, including four children, the youngest just six years old. A number of the injured remain in critical condition.

On its official website, the UNRWA announced that because of the ongoing hostilities around the Neirab camp and the ensuing deteriorating security situation it has been forced to suspend the six schools that it runs within the camp – impacting more than 3,000 children. UNRWA notes that while it has opened its schools in Neirab camp today, it does so with the sad knowledge that three of its students will not be joining the final preparations for the end-of-year exams.

It called on all parties to the conflict to abide by their obligations under international humanitarian law, namely in taking all precautionary measures to ensure the protection of civilians during hostilities, stressing that it condemns the killing and wounding of all civilians, including Palestine refugees.

The dramatic escalation in hostilities in northwestern Syria leaves UNRWA concerned for an estimated 10–20,000 Palestine refugees who are displaced in that area. The relief agency wishes to join calls by other humanitarian actors in Syria for an end to the terrible suffering of civilians.
