Protest in Yarmouk, a besieged refugee camp in Syria, in solidarity with the people of Gaza.
By the start of the 2011 Syrian uprising, the Yarmouk camp housed some 150,000 Palestinian refugees, the largest concentration in Syria.Government forces eventually surrounded the Yarmouk camp and placed it under siege, cutting off humanitarian aid and food deliveries. This siege has led to more than 100 deaths related to dehydration and famine so far. But the siege was not so strict initially—it has been tightened in two stages. The first partial siege was instituted as part of the regime’s initial crackdown on Yarmouk, whereas a much tighter and deadlier siege followed later.
More than 1,740 Palestinians have been killed by the Syrian regime since the beginning of the Syrian revolution. (x)
