Residents of Daraa Camp for Palestinian refugees south of Syria continue to sound distress signals over the acute shortage in bread loafs in the area.
Human rights sources quoted the residents as stating that they have been forced to lineup outside of the local oven for hours in order to get a loaf of bread.
Dozens of Palestinian families have reportedly been forced to walk for several kilometers to fetch bread for their starved children.
Long queues are also spotted daily outside of the state-owned bakery, located two kilometers away from the camp, as members of extended families continue to line up for bread.
Daraa Camp for Palestinian refugees has been grappling with abject conditions as a result of the fallouts of the military operation launched by the Syrian government forces in mid-June 2018 using internationally-prohibited weapons in an attempt to recapture the area. Over 70% of civilian homes and property were destroyed.
An acute shortage in medicines and much-needed items has made life unbearable in the area.
