Hundreds of Palestinians on Sunday participated in a protest in solidarity with the residents of Yarmouk refugee camp in Syria.
The demonstrators who staged the protest at an invitation from Palestinian faction Hamas carried placards on which they called for rescuing the residents of the camp, most of which has been overtaken by ISIL.
"What happens in the camp is a real human crisis," Mohamed Abu Askar, a senior Hamas member, said during the protest.
He called on the Palestinian leadership, Arab states and the international community to act to save the camp.
Violence has flared up inside the camp, which accommodates tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees, since Wednesday when ISIL members stormed it and clashed with other armed groups.
On Saturday, Hamas called for ending bloodshed and fighting in the camp.
Faction deputy leader Ismail Haniyeh said Yarmouk should be apart from ongoing conflicts in Syria.Last Mod: 06 Nisan 2015, 10:13
