General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees Pays Visit to Syria’s Handarat Camp

Representatives of the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees showed up in Handarat Camp, in Aleppo. The visit reportedly culminated in “important” decisions regarding the situation in the area.

Media sources quoted the delegation as stating that any attempt to force civilians to give up their homes and property in AlNeirab and Handarat refugee camps remains “illegitimate”, unless otherwise authorized by the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees in accordance with the Cabinet of Ministers Resolution 1140 adopted in 1990.

Palestinian refugees have been grappling with dire conditions due to the lack of humanitarian assistance and life-saving services. The majority of families have been taking shelter in buildings rented at extremely steep costs in the poverty-stricken area. A severe water and power crisis also continues to rock the camp.

Heavy shelling on Handarat and bloody shootouts between the government forces and the opposition outfits led to the destruction of over 90% of buildings in the camp. The confrontations culminated in the government’s takeover of the camp along with other zones in Aleppo and the displacement of its residents on April 27, 2013.

Handarat Camp (also called Ein AlTel Camp) is located to the northeast of Aleppo’s Hill, overseeing the Turkey-bound traffic lanes. It stands on a rocky hill and is situated some 13 kilometers away from the city center.

According to data by the General Authority, some 8,000 Palestinian refugees used to take shelter in Handarat. Only 175 displaced families returned to the camp following the heavy onslaughts launched by the Syrian government battalions.
