A statement by the action group for Palestinians in Syria on Monday said that 16 Palestinians were killed over the past 24 hours due to the Syrian regular army’s extensive shelling and sniper fire targeting refugee camps.

It said that the bombardment targeted main streets and suburbs in Yarmouk refugee camp, adding that 30 Palestinians were also wounded in the attack including seven in serious condition.

The group said that hospitals in the camp declared a state of alert and appealed for blood donations, and asked doctors nearby to rush to aid in the emergency rooms in view of the shortage in medical supplies and manpower in those hospitals.

It said that a Palestinian woman and her four children were wounded in Syrian bombing of Al-Husseiniya refugee camp.
