Al Sayeda Zainab in Damascus Suburb, Complicated Crises, and Silence Suffering.

In Al Sayeda Zainab camp at Damascus suburb, which is controlled by the Syrian regular army and the civic committees, the residents are suffering of severe living crises, especially after the security tightening at the checkpoints.

One of the residents describes the checkpoints favoritism and checking saying, "bread can be provided for a family rather than others by favoritism." The residents also complain of the scarcity of fuel and using the firewood instead, in addition to the high prices of materials in general and the fuel in particular.

Moreover, the camp receives hundreds of displaced families from the other camps, as in the past few years, many families from Yarmouk and Husseneia camps have moved to Al Sayeda Zainab camp, which increased the population, as well as the house rents has been raised.

These crises increased the exhausting costs of the Palestinian family, within the weakness of potentials and financial resources, as well as the spread of unemployment, prompting some of them to travel out or work within the popular pro-Syrian army committee. It is mentioned that at the beginning of 2013 the armed opposition groups entered the camp, and after violent clashes and shelling for 7 months, the Syrian army has entered the camp, and the pro-Syrian army Palestinian popular Committees took over the task of protecting the camp.

Those battles have negative impacts  on the camp and its residents, since a huge part of the camp was demolished, and a large number of its residents died, the reports estimated them of 100 victims and 200 injuries; such as amputation and permanent impairments, while the AGPS also documented the names of 32 detainees by the Syrian security forces.
