Eye-Witnesses: Holy Koran Books Stolen from Yarmouk Camp

A resident of Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees said he caught sight of a Syrian security officer boarding a motorcycle and who stole Holy Koran books from a local mosque.

The eye-witness added that iron bars have been stolen from the dome of the Palestine Mosque, in Yarmouk displacement camp.

Activists have warned that civilian property has been subjected to ongoing theft assaults and homes to burglary in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Damascus. Flocks of vehicles laden with belongings stolen from abandoned buildings in the camp have been spotted near the main entrance to the area.

Over recent years, pro-government militias have been raking through evacuated homes in Yarmouk and holding sway over furniture, copper, iron, and kitchenware belonging to displaced families.

The Syrian government forces regained control over Yarmouk Camp and southern Damascus towns following a 33-day military operation launched in April 2018. 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.

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