Drug Abuse Increasingly Reported in AlHusainiya Refugee Camp

Young men have reportedly been consuming drugs on the streets and at the schools of AlHusainiya Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Rif Dimashq.

Over recent years, residents of AlHusainiya Camp have raised alarm bells over the striking upsurge in the rate of school dropouts among schoolchildren and university students.

The warfare in Syria, which has now entered its eleventh year, has had traumatic fallouts on Palestinian refugees in and outside the Syrian territories.

The war has resulted in increasing rates of juvenile delinquency, unemployment, and psychological disorders.

Reports of drug consumption and trafficking have also increasingly emerged in displacement camps set up for Palestinian refugees in Syria

Daily scenes of destruction and bloodshed in Syria forced dozens of helpless civilians, among them children, to consume drugs and sniff glue, among other life-threatening substances, as a means to get over the trauma inflicted by the unabated warfare. Drug use, which starts as a way to escape, quickly makes their life worse.

Drug distribution is often carried out by children aged below 18 and members of cash-strapped and vulnerable families who are exploited by illicit drug trafficking networks which are subject to drug prohibition laws.
