Russia wants Palestinians kept out of Syria fighting
Russia is "deeply concerned" by reports that each side in the Syrian conflict is enlisting and arming Palestinian refugees and said on Friday they should be kept out of the fighting. Syria hosts more than 500,000 Palestinian refugees, according to United Nations figures.

 

"We call for the participants of the conflict in the Syrian Arab Republic to show restraint and do all possible for Palestinian refugees not to be dragged into the Syrian confrontation and for places of their residence not to become objects of hostility," the Russian foreign ministry said. (Reuters)
