Murra: Nahr al-Bared residents are victims of the 2007 war

Days of Palestine -

Senior Hamas official Ra’fat Murra said that the Palestinian residents of Nahr al-Bared refugee camp in Lebanon paid a price for a war they were not a party to it.

In a press release on Monday, Murra affirmed that the Nahr al-Bared Palestinians were the biggest victims of the 2007 fight that destroyed their camp.

He pointed out that the Nahr al-Bared war started when militants fled to the camp and used it as a hiding place, adding that the war displaced all the Palestinian residents, which numbered about 45,000 people, and destroyed it completely.

The Hamas official stressed the need to maintain security and stability in Palestinian refugee camps and spare them any conflicts.

Most of the camp’s neighborhoods have not been built yet and many of the residents live in very difficult conditions, he affirmed.

He called for rebuilding the camp entirely and help the residents restore their lives to normal.
