Yarmouk’s Displaced Families Level Heavy Criticism at Damascus Governorate

Damascus Governorate continues to drag its feet over civilians’ calls to return to their homes in Yarmouk Camp and retrieve their property.

Displaced families slammed the Syrian authorities in Damascus for turning their back on their appeals to return to the camp and reconstruct destroyed facilities.  

Unofficial statistics indicate that some 200 families have remained 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 forces regained control over the area and southern Damascus towns following the operation. Dozens of civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the offensive. Over 60% of buildings in Yarmouk have gone either totally or partially destroyed.

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.
