Humanitarian aid distributed to Yarmouk Camp displaced residents who fled ISIS

Damascus, SANA – Humanitarian aid distribution to the people displaced from Yarmouk Camp neighborhood has continued.

Thousands of residents have managed to flee the neighborhood after terrorists from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) entered it days ago and have committed acts of killing and abduction against the civilians there.

The neighborhood is home to Syrian citizens and a majority of Palestinians displaced from their Israeli-occupied land, and has been besieged by terrorist groups since 2012.

The government-supervised aid distribution was carried out by the General Authority for Palestine Arab Refugees (GAPAR) and the United Nations Relief and Work Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) at a makeshift center set up in Zeinab al-Hilaliyeh School in al-Tadamun neighborhood.

GAPAR Director-General Ali Mustafa told SANA on Friday that the aid included food, non-food and medical supplies, noting that the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) provided medical service to the people.

The residents who fled Yarmouk Camp and moved to Yalda area also have received food and non-food supplies offered by the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) and several charity associations.
