Displaced Residents of Yarmouk Camp Call for Urgent, Safe Return

Palestinian families displaced from Yarmouk camp have urged local authorities to allow them to safely return to their homes and retrieve their property.

Activists said concerned authorities have been dragging their feet regarding civilians’ calls for return, despite the presidential decision green-lighting the safe return of Yarmouk residents to their abandoned homes.

They 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.

At the same time, civilian property has been subjected to theft and homes to burglary in Yarmouk Camp.

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.
