PRC Urges UNHRC to Push for Reconstruction of Yarmouk Camp for Palestine Refugees

Director of the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) Tareq Hammoud said intensive efforts have been made by PRC’s delegates at the UNHRC to pressurize the Syrian government to embark on the reconstruction of destroyed buildings and facilities in Yarmouk Camp for Palestine refugees, in Damascus.

Speaking with Quds Press International news site, Hamoud said civilians’ have been denied access to their homes in the camp.

In response to a question about the results of the calls launched by PRC on September 18 as part of Agenda Item 4 of the UNHRC’s 42nd regular session, Hamoud said though the measures called for at the council are not legally binding, drawing the UN’s attention to such alarming issues is imperative.

PRC’s director also said that reports and documents submitted at the UNHRC represent an indirect form of pressure as parties and governments accused of human rights breaches will appear on UN blacklists, which will shed further light on the importance of accountability and punishment, regardless of the UN’s non-executive powers.

Commenting on the situation in war-torn Syria, Hamoud said the socio-political landscape is internally and externally complicated, adding that Palestinians’ presence in Syria should be redefined in line with international law.

PRC’s director also warned of the deteriorating humanitarian situation of displaced Palestinian families in northern Syria, saying such an issue lies on top of PRC’s pro-Palestine agenda.
