Syrian rebels take over Palestinian camp in Damascus

Published: 12.18.12, 00:08 / Israel News

Syrian rebels took full control of the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp in southern Damascus on Monday after days of fighting, rebel and Palestinian sources said. The battle had pitted rebels, backed by some Palestinians, against Palestinian fighters of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) loyal to President Bashar Assad.


Many of the PFLP-GC fighters had defected to the rebel side on Saturday after their leader Ahmed Jibril left the camp, rebel sources said. (Reuters)
