Civilians’ Life Threatened by Motorbike Riders in Jaramana Camp for Palestinian Refugees

Residents of Jaramana Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Rif Dimashq, have raised concerns over the increasing abductions, home-burglary attempts, and sexual harassment reported in the area, particularly overnight due to chronic power blackouts. 

Civilians said masked motorcyclists driving at high speed and without regard for road safety rules have been involved in robbery in the area.

Jaramana camp is 8km from Damascus on the road to Damascus International Airport.  The camp was established in 1948.

UN data indicates that before the start of the conflict in 2011, there were over 18,000 Palestine refugees living in Jaramana camp. During the Syrian crisis, the number of Palestine refugees in the camp and the surrounding area increased to 49,000 due to an influx of displaced Palestine refugees from other areas, including the camp of Yarmouk. As a result, Jaramana has become one of the most densely populated areas of Damascus.

Like other areas in Syria, displacement, unemployment, inflation, protection and security risks are among the main concerns shared by Palestine refugees and Syrians alike.
