Law 03/2018 Greenlights Rubble-Clearance in Yarmouk Camp

Damascus Governorate has announced its intention to remove debris from March 8th Street, in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, south of Damascus, in accordance with Law 03 of 2018.

The move comes following complaints filed by civilians about the severe damage inflicted on their houses and property due to uncleared rubble.

Law no 03/3018 gives the governor the authority to determine damaged zones and buildings that should be removed. The property owner is given a one-month deadline to present his/her ownership documents but is denied the right to appeal the governor’s decision.

The governor is also entitled to issue demolition orders against uninhabitable houses and to issue a five-member committee to identify the condition of damaged buildings and assess ownership documents. The committee is led by a real estate judge and comprises head of the survey department in the real estate registry, a real estate expert, a representative of real estate interests, and a representative of the residents.

Palestinian refugees said Law no 3/2018 fails to take into consideration the situation of those who have been displaced from the camp and lost their documents in the war. They are unable to renew their documents or obtain new ones in a one-month time-span, in a country severely affected by the war. Several of them traveled to other destinations and cannot return to the country over retaliation concerns.
