Palestinian Refugees Denounce Property-Theft in Yarmouk Camp

Residents of Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, south of Damascus, have called on Syrian authorities to take urgent action in response to increasing burglary and violence.

Recently, thieves barged their way into abandoned houses on Street 15 to steal iron and metallic items.

Gangsters have also been using violence and white guns to terrorize civilians who protest burglary.

Civilians’ appeals for urgent action have gone unheeded.

Reports of burglary continue to emerge in Yarmouk Camp, south of Damascus, where hundreds of Palestinian refugees had been taking shelter.

Palestinian families displaced from the area continue to call on the concerned authorities to allow them a safe return to their homes and to press ahead with reconstruction projects.

Over recent years, pro-government militias have been raking through evacuated homes in Damascus and holding sway over furniture, copper, iron, and kitchenware belonging to displaced families.

The Syrian government forces regained control over Yarmouk Camp and southern Damascus towns following a 33-day military operation launched in April 2018. Dozens of civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the offensive. Over 60% of buildings have gone either totally or partially destroyed in the warfare.

UN data indicates that before the eruption of the conflict in 2011, Yarmouk was home to approximately 160,000 Palestine refugees, making it the largest Palestine refugee community in Syria. Located eight kilometers from Damascus, it is one of three unofficial camps in Syria.
