Gaza, ALRAY - A Palestinian child from al-Yarmouk refugee camp was killed due to the ongoing shelling on the camp, the Action Group for Syria said.
The group reported that child Mahmoud Sa’d died after he was prevented from getting out of the camp for treatment.
It indicated that a mortar shell landed in al-Talae’ garden in al-Yarmouk camp, leading to several injuries among Palestinians.
The Syrian regime has been imposing the siege on the camp for 285 consecutive days, preventing the entry of food and medical supplies.
Humanitarian aids did not enter the camp for 12 days and food supplies ran out.
In the same context, UN warned of impending humanitarian crisis, while UNRWA asserted that about20.000 refugees are facing death due to starvation following the collapse of a fragile agreement between the free army and the Syrian regime to enter food to the besieged camp.
UNRWA spokesperson Chris Gunness said in a statement to “the Independent” newspaper, “the situation in Yarmouk camp was already miserable, and now it has become more miserable.”
At least 1,500 Palestinians have been killed in the ongoing Syria conflict, and around 250,000 Palestinian refugees have been forced to leave their homes in Syria due to violence in the country.
Prior to the conflict, 600,000 Palestinian refugees lived in Syria.
Between 7-800,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes inside Israel during the 1948 conflict that led to the creation of “Israel”, and today their descendants number around five million, spread across the world.
