5. (soundbite)(ENGLISH) Filippo Grandi, Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA)“ Two days after my last visit; the camp was engulfed in this conflict. So it’s the first time after more than a year. But more importantly; the distributions that we have seen today still very small; they are the first distributions that have been happening for a few weeks now for the people that have been cut-off, besieged, trapped into Yarmouk for many months. So; it is a very important step, but like I said to the refugees themselves; this is the first step, this is a step that has been made possible by the agreements of the parties to their duty, which is to protect civilians and to spare them the consequences of war, but much more needed to be done, still a few poeple are coming, we need to reach out to them, we need to go to them not to people to come to us. We also need to reopen the schools, the clinics to do all their work.”
