Gaza, ALRAY - 223 Palestinian refugees were killed in Syria by Syrian regime army snipers since the beginning of Syria turmoil , Palestinian Action group for Palestinians of Syria reported.
The group mentioned in a statement that the last victim was a Palestinian girl child called Falstine Omer from Yarmouk camp.
The lives of thousands of Palestinian refugees in Yarmouk camp in Damascus are at risk due to the ongoing siege on the camp by Syrian regime forces.
After rebels seized control of Yarmouk in December 2012, the camp became embroiled in the armed fighting taking place across Syria and came under heavy regime assault. Regime forces eventually encircled the camp and in July imposed a siege on the camp, leading to a rapid deterioration of living conditions.
