Property-Theft Attempts Ongoing in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian Refugees

Flocks of vehicles continue to be caught stealing furniture from destroyed buildings and abandoned homes in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Damascus.

Over recent years, pro-government militias have been raking through evacuated homes in Yarmouk and holding sway over brass pots and kitchen ware belonging to displaced families.

Reports of theft have 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.

The Syrian government forces regained control over Yarmouk Camp and southern Damascus towns following a 33-day military operation launched in April 2018. Dozens of civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the offensive. Over 60% of buildings have gone either totally or partially destroyed in the warfare.

Palestinian families displaced from Yarmouk Camp called on the concerned authorities to allow them a safe return to their homes and press ahead with reconstruction projects.
