Reconstruction Works to Be Kick-Started in Few Weeks in Yarmouk

Pro-government sources in Syria said a flock of reconstruction vehicles will enter Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Damascus, within a two weeks’ time.

According to the same sources, Syrian government forces removed concrete blocks set up at the main entrance to the camp pending the entrance of reconstruction vehicles.

Scores of stranded families fled Yarmouk following the 33-day military operation launched by the government forces on April 19, 2018. The Syrian government forces regained control over the camp and southern Damascus towns following the operation. 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 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.
