Palestinian Families in Syria’s Daraa Camp Appeal for Humanitarian Action

Palestinian Families in Syria’s Daraa Camp Appeal for Humanitarian Action

Humanitarian conditions have gone remarkably worse in Daraa Camp for Palestinian refugees due to the price leap, poor infrastructure, and absence of vital services.

Civilians continue to rail against the mounds of trash and debris piled up in civilian neighborhoods and around the main access roads to the camp, resulting in bed smells and the spread of life-threatening diseases and rodents.

The residents have launched calls to provide them with gas and fuel supplies needed for cooking and heating. The poor sanitation networks and improper sewage disposal have made the situation worse.

Activists attributed the situation to 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.

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.

Most of Daraa’s schools have also 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.

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.
