Palestinian sources in Syria reported Monday that 7 more Palestinian refugees were killed by a shell targeting their vehicle while driving near the Al-Yarmouk refugee camp, near Damascus. A Palestinian refugee living in the camp told the Maan News Agency that the killed refugees were moved to Palestine and Al-Bassel Hospitals, before they were buried in the Ash-Shuhada’ graveyard.

The refugee added that the situation is currently relatively calm, but the residents fear further escalation.

It is worth mentioning that at least 16 Palestinian refugees were killed, Sunday, by shells targeting the camp.

The Al-Yarmouk refugee camp was repeatedly shelled, an issue that led to dozens of casualties.

There are approximately half a million refugees living in Al-Yarmouk refugee camp, most of them were forced out of their homes and lands when Israel was established in the historic land of Palestine in 1948.
