70 of Homes in Syria’s Yarmouk Camp for Palestine Refugees Destroyed, Says PLO Official

Head of the political department of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Anwar Abdul Hadi, said 70% of homes in Yarmouk Camp along with the infrastructure have sustained total damage in the warfare. 30% were partially damaged.

According to Abdul Hadi, the Syrian government is considering reconstructing the camp, adding that an ad hoc committee will finalize a plan to that end in a month’s time.

Speaking with Palestine TV, the PLO official said that over the past four months the Syrian authorities carried out field surveys and embarked on mine clearance operations as part of underway attempts to rehabilitate the Palestinian refugee camp.

Abdul Hadi said the Syrian government will take charge of the reconstruction of infrastructure and three floors of civilian buildings. Six floors will be greenlighted by the government, up from three in previous years. Chinese partners are slated to provide the camp with cement and iron.

40 families have remained in Yarmouk Camp, stated Abdul Hadi.

UNRWA data indicate that out of 560,000 Palestinian refugees formerly sheltered in Syria, 450,000 have become internally displaced and 120,000 fled to other destinations, including 28,000 to Lebanon and 17,000 to Jordan.
