The Action Group for the Palestinians of Syria said that the Assad regime’s attacks on the Daraa camp for Palestinian refugees in southern Syria left hundreds of people dead and wounded, as well as caused the destruction of more than 60 percent of its buildings and infrastructure and the displacement of thousands of households.
The London-based monitoring group indicated that 20 percent of the camp was completely destroyed by the regime’s attacks, while 40 percent was partially destroyed. It pointed out that the camp residents suffer extremely dire living conditions as a result of the destruction of infrastructure and scarcity of drinking water.
The Group indicated that the UNRWA and the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees restored as few as 62 houses in the southern part of the camp, which was the most affected by the Assad regime’s war on the camp.
The Action Group estimated that between 650 and 700 households currently reside in Daraa camp out of approximately 4,500 households who used to live there before 2011.
