UN Data: 5,489 Buildings Destroyed in Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian Refugees

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 UNITAR published a damage atlas that uses satellite-detected damage analysis to identify buildings that are either destroyed, or severely or moderately damaged. The analysis has been visualized and developed further to provide an overview of the extent of damage and its impact on the community.

The city of Homs came third in the list with 13,778 buildings destroyed. The destroyed buildings included 12,781 in Raqqa, 10,529 in Hama, 6,405 in Deir Ezzor, and 5,489 in the Yarmouk camp for Palestinian refugees.

According to the study, the city of Aleppo came first in terms of the number of buildings destroyed by the government forces’ bombing campaigns. Nearly 36,000 buildings in Aleppo and 35,000 others in the Damascus suburb of eastern Ghouta were destroyed.

The majority of the Syrian cities, towns and villages which revolted against the Assad regime were subjected to heavy aerial and artillery bombardment which caused enormous damage to infrastructure, public facilities and civilian homes.

Most of Palestinian families taking shelter south of Damascus fled Yarmouk as a result of the tough blockade imposed by the government troops and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command and also after ISIS grabbed hold of the camp on April 1, 2015. Scores of other stranded families fled the camp following the 33-day military operation launched by the government forces on April 19.

The Syrian government forces regained control over Yarmouk Camp and southern Damascus towns following the military operation. Dozens of civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the offensive. Over 80% of buildings in Yarmouk have gone either totally or partially destroyed in the warfare.

A number of activists and residents attempting to reach their homes in Yarmouk Camp have been denied access into the area by Syrian government troops deployed at the main entrances to the camp.

Reports of theft have emerged after Syrian government forces grabbed hold of the camp and reportedly burglarized civilian homes. Pro-government troops stole electric kit, furniture, and wares, among other equipment.
