GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The head of a PLO delegation briefed political factions in Gaza on Wednesday about a recent visit to Syria.

Zakaria al-Agha headed a high-level delegation to Syria last week to discuss the situation of Palestinians caught up in the internal conflict.

The PLO delegation met with Syrian officials, faction representatives in Palestinian refugee camps and officials from the UN agency for Palestinian refugees.

Al-Agha said the visit was coordinated between different PLO factions to best protect the interests and goals of Palestinians in the country.

Fatah spokesman in Gaza, Fayez Abu Aita, praised the visit and stressed that the PLO must continue to monitor the situation of Palestinian refugees caught up in the Syria conflict.
