Displaced Families to Return to Yarmouk Camp

Displaced Families to Return to Yarmouk Camp

Syrian security forces deployed on Street 30 have allegedly started registering names of families wishing to return to Yarmouk Camp.

Property ownership proofs and identity documents have been stipulated as a precondition for the registration process.

AGPS could not identify the piece of news. 

Local activists said an officer at the checkpoint received civilians’ applications and documents, pending the approval of their return. Owners of uninhabitable houses will not be allowed in.

Palestinian families continue to call on the concerned authorities to allow them a safe return to their homes in Yarmouk Camp, in Damascus, and to press ahead with reconstruction projects.

A number of activists have warned of ongoing attempts to alter the demographic character of the camp and blur its identity as a living witness to the Palestinian refugee plight.

Last year, 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.
