  6. 6. now Government’s plan As part of the government's plan, camp residents have the option of returning to their homeland (taking advantage of UNHCR assistance) or relocating to other camps inside the Punjab or North West Frontier Province. The camp is one of over 100 such sites set up for Afghan refugees who poured into Pakistan following the 1979 Soviet invasion of their country. Many of Jalozai's residents have lived in the camp, one of the oldest in Pakistan, for decades. The Pakistani authorities say most Afghans still in the country are “economic refugees” and that some camps had become hiding places for militants. Over the past five years the government has been calling for the closure of large camps for Afghan refugees, calling them a haven for “terrorists” and criminal activities. In recent weeks, over 3,000 camp residents have voluntarily returned to their homeland, according to UNHCR.
