TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian rebels attacked al-Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp in Southern Damascus on Sunday and killed dozens of Palestinians and Syrian civilians.

Some 600 terrorists entered the camp after withdrawal of popular groups from al-Orouba and al-Lobiya streets and opened fire on everyone, which led to the killing and injury of many people, a source in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said on Sunday, adding the conflicts are still underway.

According to eyewitnesses, the terrorists killed tens of Syrian civilians and executed several people in the streets.

Many people have tried to take shelter in safer areas and the al-Basel hospital was closed due to its inability to give service to the large numbers of the people wounded during the terrorists’ attack on the refugee camp.

According to FNA dispatches, clashes between the terrorists and popular groups still continue in the area.

Terrorists have tried hard in the last several days to make Syrian cities unsafe for citizens, but the army has purged them from most neighborhoods and districts, killed tens of them and arrested many others.

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.
