Assad regime forces executed a Palestinian refugee in the Yarmouk refugee camp south of the capital Damascus after he tried to prevent them from looting his house in the ravaged district.
Local activists said that Assad’s militiamen cold bloodily shot Palestinian refugee Saleh Alloh after he entered the camp to check on his house in the Oroba Street. Alloh was shot dead when resisted Assad militias’ who were looting his house.
Videos and photos that activists published on social media showed Assad militiamen looting shops and civilian homes in Yarmouk camp as well as in the neighborhoods of Tadamon and al-Hajar al-Aswad after they forcibly displaced residents of the camp.
In a similar incident, Assad regime forces executed Palestinian child Mahmoud al-Bakr two weeks ago when he tried to prevent them from looting his house in the Orouba Street in the Yarmouk refugee camp. Regime forces also shot dead two Palestinian young men while they were trying to enter the camp to check on their houses.
Meanwhile, the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria (AGPS) said Monday that at least 32 Palestinian refugees have been killed in the onslaught the Assad regime launched on the Yarmouk camp in mid-April as more bodies are being discovered under the rubble of bombed buildings in the southern Damascus suburb.
The figure has brought to 3,766, the number of Palestinian-Syrians who have been killed in Syria since March 2011, including 477 women, AGPS said.
The London-based monitoring group said that the victims were killed in bombings, clashes, and under torture in the prions of the Assad regime. A few days after the end of the military campaign on eastern Ghouta, the Assad regime and Russian forces launched a similar offensive to recapture the Yarmouk camp, which had been subjected to years of siege and heavy bombardment with the aim of emptying the area of its local population.
