The residents of Yarmouk camp for Palestinian refugees have been told that they can now return to their homes, so long as they meet a number of conditions.
Damascus Governorate has set three conditions for the return of the residents of Yarmouk camp to their homes, member of the executive office of Damascus Governorate, Samir Jazaerli, told pro-regime newspaper, Al-Watan.
Jazaerli explained that Damascus Governorate had agreed to the return of the residents on condition that the building they live in is habitable, the submitted ownership documents are valid, and the necessary approvals are issued by local authorities.
He pointed out that the committee tasked with brokering the return of Yarmouk camp residents to their homes discussed, during a meeting held on Monday evening, the 2,900 objections filed against the new reconstruction plan issued by Damascus Governorate in June.
Dozens of Palestinian families have recently submitted their property documents at the Syrian security checkpoint pitched on Street 30, outside of Yarmouk camp, in order to obtain security approvals to return to their houses.
