EHRAN (FNA)- A senior official of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) reiterated on Sunday that the Palestinian refugees who reside in Damascus fully support President Bashar Assad’s government.

A third party wants to involve the Palestinian refugees in the Syrian crisis in line with the interests of the Zionist regime but the Palestinian refugees will remain as supporters of the Syrian government and don’t interfere in the country’s affairs,” PLO Director in Syria for Political Affairs Nour Abdolhadi told FNA on Sunday.

He reiterated that the Palestinian refugees will never be fooled by the Zionist regime’s plots and always appreciate the Syrian nation and government who have showed respect for the Palestinian people.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.

Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes.

The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.

In October 2011, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of increasing unrests in Syria.
