UN decries condition of Yarmouk refugee camp

Posted: Apr 7, 2015 at 3:19 pm   /   by   /   comments (0)

The United Nations (UN) Security Council has decried the poor state of Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk in Damascus and

demanded access to it.

A UN official had described the condition of the 18,000 refugees there as “beyond inhumane”, lamenting that

the situation deteriorated since April 1, 2015 when Islamic State (IS) fighters launched an offensive.

It would be recalled that Palestinian militiamen opposed to the Syrian government and some Free Syrian Army fighters are leading the war against IS.
