BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian rebels took full control of the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp in southern Damascus on Monday after days of fighting, rebel and Palestinian sources said.

The battle had pitted rebels, backed by some Palestinians, against Palestinian fighters of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

Many of the PFLP-GC fighters had defected to the rebel side on Saturday, and their leader Ahmed Jibril left the camp on the same day, rebel sources said.

"All of the camp is under the control of the (rebel) Free Syrian Army," said a Palestinian activist in Yarmouk. He said the clashes had stopped and the remaining PFLP fighters had retreated and joined the government forces massed on the northern edge of the camp. (Reporting by Mariam Karouny)

Guess they are not so innocent after all. Seems this make that camp a legit military target.

I am sure there are those that believe that whole wholeheartedly. That doesn't change the facts in this. These are Palestinians being killed by Assad's forces also Palestinians loyal to him, and i'm sure Iranians. No outrage over this, it seems. The convenient boogieman cannot be blamed for this. Also, you wont see many threads on it, because of the anti-Israeli agenda, that oozes from this site.



Oh yeah, HELL YA.....OUTRRRRRAAAAGE!!

You wanna talk OUTRAGE?!!!

Tally up the scorecard of all the Iraqis who were killed during the DICK AND BUSH administration.

Hundreds of thousands! OUTRRRRRAAAAAGE!

Well lets take our focus off the anti-Israel agenda. The USA have been committing the same acts for the past 9 years in Iraq. If you can condemn Assad for attacking a camp where rebels have apparently taken over, why hasn't the US been condemned for the 1000's of innocent Iraqis who had to deal with bombs being dropped on their heads?

Your nothing but a bunch of hypocrites and half the time I think you like blaming others to simply keep the focus off the atrocities the US has committed themselves. With that, kidnapping innocent journalists and bombing schools is not the work of freedom fighters. You should take a look at some of the crap coming out of Syria and not from your reliable MSM...

If the PLO has observer status at the UN since the 70s and recognizes Israels right to exist since the 90s, then it really isn't the PLO is it?

It can't be.... it was built on the resistance of the Zionist entity and the return of Palestinian land.

Look at Palestine. Israel is battling Palestine RIGHT NOW. Look at what Palestine has been downsized to. What are they, Masochists? Palestine almost does not exist anymore so this PLO recognizing Israels right to do all this crap since that is what being Israels neighbors entales.... then NO... I don't think that is THE PALESTINIAN LIBERATION ORGANIZATION at all.

Wake up.

Just goes to show how ineffective the PLO is, and Hamas is.

Wake up!

OH CRAP.... Look at all this war in our country, Palestine. It sure would be nice to avoid this so it's either leave, put up with it or fight and we obviously don't feel like fighting.

Whatever will we do?

Hey, I gotta great idea! Let's go camping in Syria. I hear it's exciting!

I am up.

Palestinians are being killed by Palestinians, with the Help of Assad's forces. Not to mention ALL the Syrians who were there also.


“We reject any justification or allegations invoked by the Syrian regime army about this massacre which includes torture, killing, and assassination,” PLO secretary general Yasser Abdel Rabbo said. “Moreover, such types of crimes need to be condemned internationally. Syria faces unprecedented massacres against Syrian people as well as Palestinians,” he said.

Unfortunately, they haven't called out the Palestinians who are siding with Assad......

If the Palestinians are helping the rebels.... who are attacking one of the few countries that recognize their rights.... then those Palestinians are terribly confused and probably don't really know WHERE they are from.

It's completely idiotic.

Why would so called fighters hide behind women and children? Why does hamas fire rockets from school playgrounds? Why do they put innocents in harms way? Why are you defending this disgusting behavior?

A good fact to start with is Rebels occupying the Palestinian camps. As in most of the bombings, Assad is attacking rebel forces, not Palestinians.. I'm sure he has killed some of his own people bombing suspected hot spots where rebles are hiding. The country is at war and unfortunetly people including Palestinians,Rebels, Syrians, Assad forces or any other person who are in the wrong spot at the wrong time are going to get slaughtered.

That's why it's very likely they are not even Palestinians. I don't care what the PLO says. If they are trying to overthrow Syria, they've got their priorities so mixed up it isn't funny. They are trying to dismantle a life line. It's a pretty dumb plot and these plots just keep getting dumber and dumber.

Why fight Assad, it's the Zionist entity they hate because they know what it's presence means.
Western globalization. There is no miniature Assad conspiracy next to that age old, long lived ongoing issue that they believe is screwing up the entire world. It's not going to add up to that and it never will.

Does Assad NOT know Refugees are in this Camp?
Also, there were Pro Assad Palestinians in this Camp ! WHY were they hiding here? That's why the Rebel forces were there, to get them out. But I see......... Demonizing/Deflecting "collateral" damage only works when its convenient, or you are another certain Nation, in that Region......... Then it Barbaric.
