With Advent of Academic Year, 700 Students in Daraa Camp for Palestine Refugees Shorn of Access to Schools

AGPS documented a sharp nosepe in access to schools for Palestinians sheltered in Daraa refugee camp, south of Syria, after most of Daraa’s education premises have been reduced to rubble in the raging warfare.

As many as 700 students (from 1st to 9th grade) taking refuge in the area have been deprived of their right to attend school, as the new academic year has seen the day.

Prior to the conflict, back in 2010, six UNRWA schools had been operative in Daraa Camp, before they shut their doors as a result of the bloody shootouts.

A number of homes have been used as alternative schools, where dozens of students are often crammed into one single room that lacks equipment, ventilation and hygiene. Double shift classes are made available in order to boost students’ academic output.

The war in Syria has had disastrous fallouts on civilians’ intellectual skills and academic performance, with hundreds of Palestine refugees dropping out of school over security concerns or following psychological breakdowns. 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.

As Syria’s bloody conflict kicked into high gear, 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. 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.

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.
