1st Phase of Yarmouk’s Rehabilitation Plan Finalized

Director-General of the General Company for Studies and Technical Consultations, Dr. Yasar Abdeen, said on Monday that the company has finalized the first phase of the organizational plan for Kabon and Yarmouk Camp.

He added that the company is considering studying an organizational plan for AlHajar AlAswad area, adjacent to Yarmouk Camp.

Activists and civilians in Yarmouk continue to urge the Syrian authorities and the Palestine Liberation Organization to seriously work on rehabilitating the camp and allow displaced civilians to return to their homes as had been green-lighted by Syria’s incumbent government.

Earlier this year, 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. 

Most of Palestinian families taking shelter south of Damascus fled Yarmouk as a result of the tough blockade imposed by the government troops 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 regained control over the camp and southern Damascus towns following the military operation. Dozens of civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the offensive. Over 80% of buildings have gone either totally or partially destroyed.

A number of activists and residents attempting to reach their homes in Yarmouk have been denied access into the area by Syrian government troops deployed at the main entrances to the camp. Reports of theft have also emerged after Syrian government forces grabbed hold of the camp and burglarized civilian homes. Pro-government troops stole electric kit, furniture, and wares, among other equipment.
