LONDON, (PIC)– The action group for the Palestinians in Syria appealed to UNRWA and human rights organizations to intervene to end the blockade imposed by the Syrian regime forces on Yarmouk refugee camp.

In a press release on Friday, the action group said that Syrian regime forces prevented the access of vital needs, including food and fuel, to Yarmouk camp which sustained a severe shortage of basic materials.

It stressed that this siege is a violation of the international law and a kind of mass punishment, holding the Syrian regime fully responsible for the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the camp.

In a related context, the Islamic Jihad Movement strongly denounced the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Seyassah for claiming on Friday that some of its cadres were fighting alongside the Syrian regime forces in Yarmouk refugee camp.

Islamic Jihad stated in a press release that such “tendentious rumors” were unfounded lies and described the newspaper as the mouthpiece of the Zionists who want to settle scores with the Movement.

“The Movement, since the start of events in Syria, has definitely decided not to interfere in the Syrian internal affairs and in addition to that, it has participated recently along with other Palestinian factions in talks with some Syrian parties to resolve the crisis in Yarmouk camp,” it said.
