BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- A young Palestinian man killed on Thursday in shelling on al-Husayniyah refugee camp in Syria, a local group said.
The Taskforce for Palestinians in Syria identified the victim as Ibrahim Hamzeh.
For the third day in a row, al-Husayniyah refugee camp has been subjected to heavy and violent shelling on different areas. The shelling has caused significant damage, and regime forces have tried to enter the camp.
Palestinians in the camp are complaining about lack of food and medications due to a blockade imposed on them by the army. The army closed all the entrances and the exits of the camp two months earlier.
In Yarmouk camp, in Damascus, a state of calm ended abruptly with clashes between rebels and regime forces using light weapons.
Early in the evening, the camp was subjected to shelling. Missiles targeted Jalal Kawash street, but only material damage was reported.
Two days earlier, Hussam Othman from al-Aideen refugee camp in Homs was detained at a checkpoint. Rafiq Shawish, from Handarat refugee camp, was freed after three days of detention.
