Banquet Held for Displaced Palestinian Students in Damascus

A banquet was held in Damascus by UNRWA and the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees. Palestinian prep and secondary school students coming from Lebanon and taking shelter at Basel AlAsad College and the Damascus Training Center were in attendance.

Displaced students, mostly from Yarmouk Camp, and Assistant-Director of UNRWA operations, along with members of the agency’s Department of Education and staff members of the General Authority for Palestine Refugees, showed up at the event.

UNRWA figures have shown that 70% of all the Agency’s schools in Syria are inoperative. This is due to school buildings being destroyed, damaged, rendered inaccessible by fighting, or because they have been turned into shelters housing the displaced.

The devastating impact of the war in Syria has diminished the academic achievement of Palestinian students in UN-run schools as educational facilities had come under heavy shelling by the Syrian and Russian forces.

Dozens of Palestinian schoolchildren were pronounced dead in government onslaughts on UNRWA-run schools in Syria.

Several such attacks against UNRWA schools in Khan Eshieh Camp, AlNeirab Camp, and Yarmouk Camp, among other embattled zones, have been documented all the way through the conflict in Syria. All warring parties have been held accountable.
