BEIRUT, (PIC)– The action group for the Palestinians in Syria said a Palestinian woman named Basema Zawawi died of serious wounds she sustained when a mortar shell fell in 30 street of the Yarmouk refugee camp.

The action group reported that violent armed clashes are still taking place between the Syrian free army and the regime forces in the Yarmouk camp where sounds of strong explosions have been heard in different areas, adding that dozens of mortar shells fell on the camp.

It said the camp is still under tight blockade by the regime forces which refuse to allow in food and medical supplies.

A barrage of shells also landed in different areas of Husseiniyeh and Sabena refugee camps without any reported casualties.

The UNRWA school in Sabena camp also sustained material damage in a mortar attack.

In a related context, a European parliamentary delegation arrived on Friday in the Lebanese capital Beirut to check on the living conditions of the Palestinian and Syrian evacuees from Syria.

The delegation will stay in Lebanon for four days during which they will visit several shelter centers.

The European lawmakers intend to meet with the Lebanese president and his foreign minister as well as the Palestinian Authority ambassador to Lebanon and officials from the Palestinian factions and UNRWA.

They plan to prepare a comprehensive report on the humanitarian situation in the refugee camps established for the evacuees from Syria, including recommendations to the European decision-makers.
