Gaza, Alray – Syrian regime army resumed on  Saturday the  shelling  of Al-Yarmouk refugee camp, shells hit different places of  the camp , no injuries, Action Group for Palestinians of Syria reported.

The group explained in a statement that  Palestinians in AL-Yarmouk, Soubeinah, Al-‘aedeen, and  Khan Al-Shiekh refugee camps suffer  deteriorated living conditions.

Al-Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp remains under an almost complete regime blockade, which has led to the deterioration in humanitarian and living conditions. The camp also suffers from a shortage in medical supplies as well as medical staff.

More than half of the 530,000 Palestinian refugees registered in Syria have been displaced and 15 percent have fled abroad, including 60,000 to neighboring Lebanon and over 7,000 to Jordan.

In March, the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria said that over 1,377 Palestinians had been killed in the ongoing Syria conflict, with that number thought to have increased significantly since then.
