BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Six Palestinians were killed in Syria on Wednesday, a local group said, with some of the bodies showing signs of torture.

The coordinating committee of Yarmouk refugee camp told Ma'an that four Palestinians were killed at a security checkpoint near the city of Aleppo.

Their bodies were found on the street and showed indications of an execution style killing, according to the group. Two other Palestinians were shot dead in their Damascus homes, it said.

Hussein al-Masri, Muhammad al-Jadaa, Hikmat Darbas al-Nayrab and Hassan Salameh, all from Nayrab refugee camp, were named as those killed in Aleppo.

Raed Hjouj and Ammar Abbas were killed in Yelda, Damascus.

Palestinian Authority Ambassador to Syria Mahmoud al-Khalidi reiterated to Ma'an on Wednesday that the PLO would not intervene in the Syrian conflict.

"Efforts are still there to maintain non-interference in the internal affairs of Syria," he said.

The consensus was confirmed during a meeting of Palestinian factions in Syria, al-Khalidi added.

Yarmouk is an unofficial camp for Palestinian refugees. The densely populated, impoverished district in southern Damascus is packed with concrete buildings.

Last week, at least 18 Palestinians were killed and their bodies displayed publicly in Damascus, PLO officials in Yarmouk said.

The PLO office said the Syrian regime "committed a massacre" against Palestinians in the camp. Bodies were found mutilated and charred, it said.

This summer, many districts of southern Damascus became a daily battleground in an 18-month-old popular revolt against Bashar Assad that has escalated into civil war.

people from the refugee camp report non-stop that the bombing & the killing is done by the so-called rebels. why dont you ever EVER mention that! we all have facebook and have contacts with many palestinians in Yarmouk. how come they tell us something completely different from your reporting. PLO officials in syria have left the palestinian refugees to suffer alone & pay the price, same as in libya. they dont give a sh**. your reporting is as much untrustworthy as the PLO officials you mention

1 ) Palestinian / somewhere in Palestine - maybe it's because they prefer to report on issues where they can blame Israel?

"Palestinian Authority Ambassador to Syria Mahmoud al-Khalidi reiterated to Ma'an on Wednesday that the PLO would not intervene in the Syrian conflict." - There have been hundreds of Palestinians killed, some by snipers, some execution style, and the Palestinians leaders say NOTHING! Not exactly taking care of the people you represent.

The so-called "Syrian Free Army" must bring these Palestinians in line. Having a refugee camp as a fall back position is just too convenient to overlook. The Israelis know the advantage of human Palestinians shields. When the unwanted "Syrian Free Army" forayed into the merchant district they used the same intimidation tactics. When chased from there the refugee camp was just what they needed.

...somewhere in Palestine #1. I said it before and I'll say it again and again and again if i must. Your leadership PA and Hamas are getting you nowhere. The so called Arab bretheran you have in the surrounding countries have not offered one bit of citizenship and only keep you in camps in order to use you as pawns against Israel. You need a leader willing to make tough concessions in order for Israel to also offer tough concessions. end part # 1

somewhere in Palestine part # 2. In the long run a peace deal ....with dignity with Israel will be the best thing for Palestinians. Free trade with Israel will make the lives of the Palestinians better then any of the lives of Jordanians, Egyptians, Syrians, or Lebanese. Both Israelis and Pals are tired of this . Believe me that tough concessions on both sides will bring about the two states and a happy resolution to this ongoing conflict. But a brave leader needs to open his mouth.
