AlHusainiya Camp for Palestinian Refugees Gripped With Fuel Shortage

Dozens of cash-strapped families in AlHusainiya refugee camp, in Rif Dimashq, said they have been deprived of fuel supplies needed for cooking and heating.

Civilians said they have not received fuel supplies slated to be distributed via the smart card every three weeks for over four months.

A gas cylinder is sold on the black market at up to 100,000 Syrian pounds, forcing families to use diesel stoves as an alternative.

A liter of fuel, sufficient for no more than three days, is sold at 3,500 - 4,000 Syrian pounds. Bus drivers sell their allotted fuel supplies at steep prices, resulting in a transportation crisis.

High unemployment rates and the absence of relief assistance by UNRWA and other humanitarian institutions have made survival quite difficult in the area.
