Palestinian families taking refuge in Khan Eshieh camp, in Rif Dimashq, said water has been cut off across residential neighborhoods for ten days running.
The residents warned of the repercussions of the water crisis on their children’s health condition in light of the global propagation of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Human rights sources said most of the families sheltered in the camp are cash-stripped and cannot afford to buy drinking water from privately-owned tanks.
Palestinian families continue to appeal to UNRWA and the concerned authorities to take urgent action regarding the alarming humanitarian condition in the camp.
