7 Years On, Tragic Traces of AlJa’ouna Massacre Still Present in Yarmouk Camp

Seven years have passed by since AlJa’ouna massacre, perpetrated on August 2, 2012, took away the lives of over 20 Palestinians in Yarmouk Camp, south of Damascus, among them children. Several other Palestinians were left wounded after two mortar shells slammed into the area prior to iftar (fast-breaking) time.

The list of casualties includes the two children Anas Talouzi and Ibrahim Talouzi, along with Yahya Alyan, Fathi Alyan, Alaa Ghuneim, Mohamed Anbatawi, Rafe’ AlRefa’i, Abdullah Saleh (aged 13), Mohamed Msheinesh, Ahmed Areisha, Mohamed Rafe’ Ali AlRefa’I (aged 27), Wael Adnan Atiyeh AlAhmed, Bahaa Ayoub (aged 21), Mahmoud Qanah, Alaa Mohamed Ghuneim, Muhssin Walid Msheinesh, Osama Akram Areisha, Yahya Ismail Alyan, Khairou Ahmed Hamida, and Emad Salah AlDin Qadah.

Scores of stranded families fled Yarmouk following the 33-day military operation launched by the government forces on April 19, 2018. The Syrian government forces regained control over the camp and southern Damascus towns following the operation. Dozens of civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the offensive. Over 60% of buildings have gone either totally or partially destroyed in the warfare.

A few months earlier, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) published the results of an assessment of the damage to Syrian cities caused by seven years of relentless bombardment by the incumbent regime and its allies since 2011.

The analysis found out that as many as 5,489 buildings were destroyed in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees. The damage atlas used satellite-detected damage analysis to identify buildings that are either destroyed, or severely or moderately damaged.
