Coalition of Palestinian Forces Reject Yarmouk Camp New Rehabilitation Plan

The Follow-Up Committee of the Damascus-based Alliance of Palestinian Forces expressed its firm rejection of a recent plan put forth by the Damascus Governorate to rehabilitate Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees.

During a Friday meeting, the committee warned that the plan entails negative consequences on Palestinian refugees and their right of return to their homeland, Palestine.

The groups called for serious efforts by all parties to facilitate the return of displaced Palestinian families to Yarmouk Camp.

Assistant Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command (PFLP-GC), Talal Naji, said efforts have been under full swing to allow Palestinian families to return to the camp and retrieve their property at the soonest possible time.

One day earlier, the Damascus City Council said the reconstruction plan for Yarmouk Camp will be released in a month’s time after complaints were filed by local residents.

The council said a three-phase reconstruction plan is under examination. The plan will take into account the degree of damage inflicted on houses and infrastructure. 

40% of Yarmouk residents are slated to return to their homes and retrieve their property after the plan enters into effect.

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.

Scores of stranded families fled the camp following the 33-day military operation launched by the government forces on April 19, 2018. The Syrian government regained control over the camp and southern Damascus towns following the military operation. Dozens of civilians were killed and dozens more injured. Over 80% of buildings have gone either totally or partially destroyed.

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.
