Displaced Families Call for Rehabilitation of Local Committee in Yarmouk Camp Committee

Civilians have called on authorities in Damascus to reactivate the local committee which was previously tasked with administering civilians’ affairs in Yarmouk Camp and which was dissolved by the former Prime Minister Emad Khamis in late 2018.

Civilians say the services department assigned by Damascus Governorate has failed to take note of civilians’ needs and hinder the return of displaced families.

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.

On February 4, 2019, a petition was handed over by the residents to Damascus governor Adel Anwar AlAlabi, urging local authorities to smooth the return of displaced families to their homes.

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.
