Sources: Deal to demilitarize Palestinian camp in Syria 'imminent'

Jan. 6, 2013 11:23 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 7, 2013 6:16 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- PLO leaders, the Free Syria Army and the Syrian regime forces are poised to conclude a deal to end the shelling and blockade of a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus, sources in Syria told Ma'an on Saturday.

The deal includes an end to Syrian army shelling of Yarmouk camp, the withdrawal of the Free Syria Army, taking down road blocks, and the entry of staple goods into the camp.

On Monday, all Palestinian refugees should return to their homes in Yarmouk, the agreement stipulates.

The sources said Yarmouk has been under total blockade by the Syrian army for four days, preventing the entry of fuel, food and medical supplies.

Six Palestinians were killed in Syria on Saturday, the sources said, including a five-year-old girl in Sbeineh refugee camp.

In December, heavy fighting broke out in Yarmouk between Syrian rebels and the army, causing Palestinians to flee.

Syria hosts half a million Palestinian refugees, descendants of those admitted after the creation of Israel in 1948.
