800 Families Currently Sheltered in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian Refugees

Member of the Reconstruction Committee in Yarmouk Camp, engineer Mahmoud AKhaled, said some 800 families have returned to Yarmouk Camp and retrieved their property.

Prior to reconstruction and rubble-clearance works, some 500 families had been sheltered in the camp.

AlKhaled said returns have been occurring at a slow pace due to poor infrastructure and absence of vital services.

He added that rubble-clearance have been ongoing since October 6. Workers have removed 90% of debris from residential alleyways in the old part of the camp. Harder efforts should be made to remove rubble from narrow and semi-closed alleyways.

The engineer also said that UNRWA has carried out a tender to rehabilitate its premises in the camp, including the Youth Support Center, the Subsistence Center, and two schools. International organizations in addition to the Palestine Liberation Organization, will contribute to the rehabilitation of some facilities in the camp, such as ovens, schools, and other institutions.
