Palestinians protest Assad at Yarmouk camp


Despite an ongoing siege of the camp by the Syrian military, Sept. 13 saw a new protest by the Palestinians of Yarmouk, outside Damascus. The protest began after Friday noon prayers outside the camp’s central mosque and ended in a march throughout the camp. Protesters stressed Palestinian-Syrian unity, and called on the armed opposition to break the siege of the camp. They also repeated calls issued under their “Breaking the Silence Campaign” for the Palestinian diaspora to speak out against the siege of the camp.
