Damascus, SANA – 1200 food packages were distributed on Tuesday to the locals of Yarmouk Camp neighborhood in southern Damascus who were displaced by ISIS terrorists and moved to the nearby towns of Yalda, Babila and Beit Sahm, Ali Mustafa, the Director General of the General Authority for Palestine Arab Refugees (GAPAR) told SANA.

Supported by the Syrian Government and under the auspices of the Higher Relief Committee, the distribution was carried out by the GAPAR and the United Nations Relief and Worker Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA).

Mustafa affirmed that delivery of food and medical aid to the displaced people of Yarmouk Camp will continue, noting that around 121,382 food packages and 23,780 health packages have been distributed to beneficiaries so far.

Residents of the terrorist-besieged neighborhood were forced to flee their homes after terrorists from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) entered the area with the help of Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization in April 2015.
