BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Fatah central committee member Abbas Zaki said Wednesday he expected supplies to enter Yarmouk refugee camp later the same day.
“The ways in which the supplies will enter the camp will be surprising,” Zaki said without elaborating.
The Fatah official added that despite the PA’s efforts only 150 food parcels so far entered the camp, which is home to 20,000 Palestinian refugees.
“Militias are still stalling in allowing food into the camp,” Zaki added. “They did not withdraw, but despite all that we will not stop our efforts to aid our people in Yarmouk.”
He explained that contacts with Syrian security forces would facilitate the transfers.
