The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) said on Tuesday that ISIL members have retreated from parts of Yarmouk, the largest camp for Palestinian refugees in Syria.
"ISIL organization now controls only 60 percent of Yarmouk camp after they had seized 90 percent of it," Anwar Abdel-Hadi, who oversees the PLO's affairs in Syria, told Palestine's official radio station on Tuesday.
Abdel-Hadi said that clashes are still ongoing between ISIL and Palestinian popular committees inside Yarmouk camp.
"ISIL members are firing at anyone who tries to enter or exit the camp," he said.
The Yarmouk camp – Syria's largest Palestinian refugee camp, hosting tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees – is located on Damascus' outskirts.
According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, at least 12 people have been killed in the violence.Güncelleme Tarihi: 07 Nisan 2015, 12:17
