DFLP: 75% of Palestinian Refugees in Syria Fled their Camps

Member of the political bureau of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) in Syria, Hasan Abdul Hamid, said the warfare led to the displacement of 58% of Palestinian refugees from their camps and residential communities.

He said up to 370,000 Palestinian refugees have gone displaced from their camps in Syria; 200,000 others have become internally displaced in the Syrian territories while 170,000 fled to other countries.

Abdul Hamid added that 700 Palestinian families returned, a few months earlier, to Daraa refugee camp; 150 returned to Handarat camp and 150 to Yarmouk camp, after the government forces recaptured such zones.

The DFLP representative said 40% of buildings in Yarmouk camp need reconstruction; 40% are habitable, and 20% are completely destroyed. The situation in Handarat camp is not far different.

He said serious efforts should be made by UNRWA, the Palestine Liberation Organization, and all other concerned bodies in order to reconstructed Yarmouk homes and facilities.

At the same time, the DFLP delegate said contacts have been underway to follow up on the situation of displaced Palestinians from Syria in Lebanon and facilitate the safe access of those who wish to return to Syria.
