DAMASCUS, (PIC)– A Palestinian refugee from Yarmouk refugee camp was killed on Friday in Damascus during his presence in an area outside the camp, according to the action group for the Palestinians in Syria.
The action group stated on Saturday that a Palestinian resident of Yarmouk camp identified as Hussein Abdul-Rahim was shot dead as he was on the road to Damascus airport.
In another context, the UNRWA was able on Friday afternoon to trickle limited numbers of food parcels into Yarmouk camp and distribute them among some residents.
The Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk has been under tight blockade for about 11 months by the Syrian regime forces and gunmen from the popular front for the liberation of Palestine-general command (PFLP-GC).
The action group said it obtained information confirming that there are still 11 Palestinian asylum-seekers in detention for more than one and a half months by the Tunisian security authorities at the pretext of illegal entry to the country.
The group appealed for releasing them and treating them as other refugees in compliance with the international law.
