Syrian Gov’t Blocks Retrieval of Palestinian Dead Bodies from Yarmouk Debris

The Action Group for the Palestinians of Syria (AGPS) slammed the Syrian authorities for preventing Yarmouk residents from removing dead bodies stranded beneath the mounds of debris piled up in the camp.

According to private sources, over 80 cadavers have been left under the mounds of rubble into which civilian homes have been turned in the warfare, particularly in AlUruba Street, south of Yarmouk, and the western corners of the camp.

The list reportedly includes bodies of civilians and ISIS gunmen who were hiding in the area. Sometime earlier, the Syrian authorities pulled the bodies of pro-government gunmen from the area.

The Syrian security forces obstructed the work of the Palestinian Red Crescent staff members who attempted to get into the area and pull the dead bodies.

The Syrian authorities claimed the ban comes on account that the cadavers’ identities remain unknown and that none of their relatives has showed up in the area.

Several months ago, activists said the bodies of Abdul Hadi Fayez Abdul Hadi, Basima Ghoutani, Haifa AlHaj, Mohamed Hadaba, and Enshirah AlShaabi have been stranded under rubble in Ata AlZeir Street, near Palestine Park, in Yarmouk.

AGPS calls on the international human rights institutions to immediately step in and pressurize the Syrian government to green-light taking out Palestinian dead bodies from underneath the debris.
