7 Years On, Tragic Traces of ‘Mig Massacre’ Still Present in Yarmouk Camp

December 16, 2019 marks the seventh anniversary of the so-called “Mig Massacre”, also known as “Abdul Kader AlHusaini massacre”, in reference to the onslaughts launched by the Syrian fighter jets on Abdul Kader AlHusaini Mosque, in Yarmouk camp for Palestinian refugees, in Damascus.

At the time of the attack, the mosque served as a shelter for hundreds of families who fled the deadly strikes on the camp. Dozens of civilians, including children and women, were killed in the massacre.

The event marked the largest mass exodus from Palestinian refugee camps in Syria. Only a handful of families have regained access to the camp, after the government forces recaptured the area.

Yarmouk camp had come under a crippling cordon by the Syrian government forces and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command. As a result, all hospitals and facilities had gone out of operation and civilians had run out of food and life-saving items, causing the death of 201 Palestinian refugees due to undernourishment and the absence of vital healthcare services.

AGPS documented the death of 1,444 Palestinian refugees from Yamrouk Camp all the way through Syria’s bloody warfare.
