2400 more food and health packages distributed to displaced families of Yarmouk Camp

Damascus, SANA – Supported by the Syrian government and supervised by the Higher Relief Committee, the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees (GAPAR) and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) distributed more humanitarian aid to the people of Yarmouk refugee camp who fled their neighborhood due to the terrorist groups’ acts.

In a statement to SANA, GAPAR Director General Ali Mustafa said 2400 food and health packages were distributed Sunday to the displaced families of Yarmouk Camp who are currently residing in the nearby towns of Yalda, Babila and Beit Sahm in Damascus countryside.

Medicines and medical services, including dental ones, were provided to needy people, Mustafa noted.

He affirmed that aid delivery and distribution in the towns will continue, adding that since January 2014, around 138,182 food packages and 43,780 health packages have been distributed to beneficiaries.

In early April, 2015, Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization facilitated the infiltration of hundreds of ISIS terrorists into Yarmouk camp to undermine efforts of the Syrian government to keep the Palestinian refugees away from getting involved in the current events in the country.

The terrorists committed horrible crimes against the residents, forcing many of them to flee the neighborhood.
