This report’s main contribution is the extended quotes from a married couple of Palestinian refugees from Syria interviewed by the Palestinian Return Centre in November 2017. The excerpts from the interviews provide a firsthand account of events from early 2011 to the end of 2017.
The family recalled the initial displacement that took place due to Syrian government airstrikes destroying their home. Mohammad Alaidy and his wife Um Rawand used to live together in Yarmouk until 2012 when they split seeking refuge from the ongoing Syrian conflict.
The account of violence and precarious living conditions experienced by the couple is accompanied by contextual information that helps explicate the trajectory of their current situation and their (uncertain) expectations for the future.
