Mahmoud Abbas Pushes for Smoothing Return of Yarmouk Residents

The Palestinian Authority (PA) President, Mahmoud Abbas, stressed the need to press ahead with the reconstruction of Yarmouk Camp so as to allow displaced Palestinians to return to their homes at the soonest time possible.

Abbas’ calls were made during a Tuesday meeting with the committee overseeing debris-clearance and reconstruction of the local cemetery in Yarmouk Camp.

The committee told Abbas that 70% of debris has been removed from Yarmouk’s alleyways and that 280 families returned to the camp.

A decision issued by Syria’s Council of Ministers during its weekly session, held on November 11, tasked local authorities in Damascus with rehabilitating infrastructure and destroyed facilities in Yarmouk Camp so as to pave the way for the safe return of the displaced residents.

Minister of Local Administration and Environment Hussein Makhlouf said at the time that the decision aims to task Damascus governorate with missions previously undertaken by Yarmouk municipality in an attempt to boost reconstruction plans and facilitate civilians’ return at the soonest time possible.

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 80% of buildings have gone either totally or partially destroyed in the warfare.
