Syrian Official: Yarmouk’s Organizational Plan to Be Finalized

Syria’s Minister of Public Works and Housing Suhail Abdul Latif said serious efforts have been ongoing to finalize the roadmap for the rehabilitation of Yarmouk Camp and other areas in Damascus.

In press statements, Abdul Latif said efforts have been under full swing by the committee taking charge of the rehabilitation file, adding that it has discussed with officials at the ministry the latest developments in this regard.

On May 23, pro-government sources in Syria announced the launch of a follow-up committee led by Minister of Public Works and Housing to wrap up rehabilitation plans in Yarmouk Camp and adjacent areas in two month’s time.

The move was announced following a meeting convened in Damascus between the Syrian Prime Minister and government officials in an attempt to boost reconstruction works in such Damascus zones as Ein AlFijeh, Ein AlKhadra, Basima, Yarmouk Camp, and Jober, among other areas.

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. 

Most of Palestinian families taking shelter south of Damascus fled Yarmouk as a result of the tough blockade imposed by the government troops 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 the 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 have gone either totally or partially destroyed.

A number of activists and residents attempting to reach their homes in Yarmouk Camp have been denied access into the area by Syrian government troops deployed at the main entrances to the camp. Reports of theft have also emerged after Syrian government forces grabbed hold of the camp and reportedly burglarized civilian homes. Pro-government troops stole electric kit, furniture, and wares, among other equipment.
