Displaced Families Sign Up for House Reconstruction in Yarmouk Camp

Damascus Governorate called on families wishing to reconstruct their houses destroyed in the warfare in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, south of Damascus, to sign up for reconstruction permits.

Required documents include a copy of the personal ID, family card, and property ownership proof along with a security permit and a document by a municipality engineer assessing the damage level and needed reconstruction materials. Replies are sent to applicants within a one week time-span.

A lawyer said that over the past couple of days five reconstruction demands have been submitted by Yarmouk’s residents. 

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

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.

Most of Palestinian families taking shelter south of Damascus fled Yarmouk as a result of the tough blockade imposed by the government troops and also after ISIS grabbed hold of the camp on April 1, 2015.

Scores of other 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.
