Displaced Palestinian Families Call for Safe Return to Their Homes in & near Yarmouk Camp

Palestinian families who were displaced from Yarmouk Camp, AlTadhamun neighborhood, and AlHajar AlAswad urged the Syrian government and all concerned parties to work on securing their safe return to their homes and rehabilitating infrastructure and vital facilities, including power and water.

The displaced families called for establishing local committees to set definite dates for civilians’ return and to issue lists of the zones included in the reconstruction plan.

Most of Palestinian families taking shelter south of Damascus fled Yarmouk as a result of the tough blockade imposed by the government troops and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command, and also after ISIS grabbed hold of the camp on April 1, 2015.

Scores of other stranded families fled the camp following the 33-day military operation launched by the government forces on April 19. The Syrian government forces regained control over Yarmouk Camp and southern Damascus towns following the military operation. Dozens of civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the offensive. Over 80% of buildings in Yarmouk have gone either totally or partially destroyed in the warfare.

A few months earlier, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) published the results of an assessment of the damage to Syrian cities caused by seven years of relentless bombardment by the incumbent regime and its allies since 2011.

The analysis found out that as many as 5,489 buildings were destroyed in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees. The damage atlas used satellite-detected damage analysis to identify buildings that are either destroyed, or severely or moderately damaged.
