Humanitarian Situation Goes Down in Syria’s Daraa Camp for Palestinian Refugees

Daraa Camp for Palestinian refugees has been grappling with abject conditions as a result of the fallouts of the military operation launched by the Syrian government forces in mid-June 2018 using internationally-prohibited weapons in an attempt to recapture the area. 80% of civilian homes and property were destroyed.

An acute shortage in medicines and much-needed items along with the government’s tough blockade on the camp have made life unbearable in the area.

The residents also continue to appeal for debris-clearance, reconstruction of ruined homes and facilities, and removal of trash piles.

Civilians said they have been forced to drink water spouting from contaminated artesian wells. The poor sanitation networks and improper sewage disposal have made the situation worse. 

Residents of Daraa Camp continue to sound distress signals over the absence of health services and life-saving medical kit. Most of the clinics and medical centers in the area have gone out of operation in the warfare. Dozens of sick and elderly civilians face mountainous journeys trying to reach AlKashef area for treatment.

The residents continue to urge the Palestine Liberation Organization, UNRWA, and the General Authority for Palestine Refugees to make serious steps in order to reconstruct infrastructure, rehabilitate water, power, and sanitation networks, and restore UNRWA’s health, educational, and relief facilities.

At the same time, AGPS documented a sharp nosepe in access to education for Palestinians sheltered in Daraa refugee camp, south of Syria.

Most of Daraa’s schools have been destroyed or put out of operation in the raging warfare as a result of heavy shelling using missiles and barrel bombs. A number of education facilities have also been turned into prisons or field hospitals, imperiling Palestinians’ academic careers. Dozens of Palestinian teaching staff members have been arrested and sent to jail. 525 students are enrolled at the UNRWA-run school in Daraa.

Six UNRWA schools had been operative in Daraa Camp, before they shut their doors as a result of the bloody shootouts.

Founded in 1950-1951, Daraa Camp is home to over 650 displaced Palestinian families. As many as 4,500 families used to take shelter in the camp prior to the outbreak of the conflict, in 2011.
