Visit by PLO Delegation to Yarmouk Camp Stirs Anger

A delegation of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) paid a visit to the AlShuhadaa Cemetery in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Damascus, on the occasion of Eid AlFitr, and laid flower wreaths at Palestinian tombs on behalf of the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

The move sparked widespread anger among civilians, activists, and journalists, who said such an over-attention given to the cemetery and the large sums of money spent to remove rubble from main roads have come at the expense of civilians, who have been left without roofs over their heads after their homes and facilities were reduced to rubble in the bloody warfare.

Activists said the PLO and other affiliated parties enter and exit Yarmouk freely and without prior notice at a time when civilians are banned from reaching their homes and belongings under counterfeit pretexts.

A couple of days earlier, the residents of Yarmouk Camp urged the PLO and concerned institutions to pressurize the Syrian authorities to unblock the thoroughfare leading to the local cemetery and allow them to visit their dead relatives during Eid.

The residents also called for serious efforts to smooth their return to their homes and speed up the reconstruction of destroyed premises.
