Maintenance Works Ongoing in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian Refugees

Pro-government sources in Syria said excavation works have been ongoing west of Yarmouk Camp to repair the main water tank in the area.

Reports have also emerged on upcoming rubble-clearance works in the ravaged camp.

Activists said members of the Palestine Liberation army are expected to be deployed in the area over security concerns. A celebration will reportedly be held as soon as the southern area is opened up before civilians wishing to return to their homes and remove debris from local buildings, pending rubble-clearance works across the main access roads and residential alleyways.

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

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.
