UNRWA Chief in Syria Meets with Damascus Governor

Director of UNRWA operations in Syria Amanya Michael-Ebye discussed with Damascus Governor Adel AlAleibi efficient ways to boost bilateral cooperation in order to enhance the dire humanitarian situation of Palestinian refugees and ensure their access to relief assistance, particularly in light of the socio-economic hardship inflicted by the anti-coronavirus lockdown measures.

This came in a Sunday meeting held at the headquarters of the Damascus Governorate.

Recently, Yarmouk residents slammed the UNRWA official for his apathy regarding their appeals to work on pressurizing the Governorate to refrain from implementing the new organizational plan issued by the end of June.

Activists from Yarmouk camp have also slammed the Damascus Governorate for blackmailing the residents who have voiced strong opposition to the new organizational plan put forth by the Governorate.

Palestinian refugees and human rights groups continue to voice their firm rejection of the new organizational plan put forth by Damascus Governorate to rehabilitate Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, which has been subjected to massive destruction in the bloody conflict.

Tension has been running high in the area as thousands of refugees continue to rail against the proposed plan, amid growing fears that their homes and property will be removed from the new plan.

Recently, the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria (AGPS) has called on the Syrian authorities in Damascus to re-examine the new organizational plan and to rather implement the old plan which was approved in 2004.

In a statement issued sometime earlier, AGPS said plans that do not take into account Palestinians’ inalienable rights make part of underway conspiracies to further displace the Palestinian people and destroy displacement camps as living witnesses to their refugee plight.

The statement said the new organizational plan will remarkably change the demographic and architectural identity of the camp. Several buildings and facilities will be removed, which will lead to a mass displacement of refugee families and a further deterioration of their humanitarian condition.

Families displaced from Yarmouk Camp continue to appeal to the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian political factions in Syria to take serious measures in order to facilitate their return to the camp, to pressurize the Syrian government to abandon the new organizational plan, and to rather work on preserving the demographic and historical idiosyncrasy of the shelter.

Activists warned that in case the plan is implemented, over half of the residents will not be able to return to their houses which they have abandoned in the bloody warfare.
