PLO Envoy: Yarmouk Camp to Be Rehabilitated Soon

Director-General of the political department of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Ambassador Anwar Abdul Hadi, said there have been “hope-jerking promises” by the Syrian government regarding the reconstruction of Yarmouk Camp for Palestine refugees, in Damascus.

In a speech delivered in the presence of popular committees and civilians in Yarmouk Camp, Abdul Hadi said reconstruction plans for Damascus governorate are to be finalized in the near future.

On Friday, Abdul Hadi met with some 50 Palestinians and Syrians taking refuge in Yarmouk Camp along with representatives of the local popular committee.

In May, Abdul Hadi said the families’ return to their homes remained indefinite, adding that several buildings were uninhabitable and risked to collapse at any possible moment.

Most of Palestinian families taking shelter south of Damascus fled Yarmouk as a result of the tough blockade imposed by the government troops and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command, and also after ISIS grabbed hold of the camp on April 1, 2015.

Scores of other stranded families fled the camp following the 33-day military operation launched by the government forces on April 19, 2018. The Syrian government forces regained control over Yarmouk Camp and southern Damascus towns following the military operation. Dozens of civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the offensive. Over 60% of buildings in Yarmouk have gone either totally or partially destroyed in the warfare.

A few months earlier, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) published the results of an assessment of the damage to Syrian cities caused by seven years of relentless bombardment by the incumbent regime and its allies since 2011.

The analysis found out that as many as 5,489 buildings were destroyed in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees. The damage atlas used satellite-detected damage analysis to identify buildings that are either destroyed, or severely or moderately damaged.
