Palestinian refugee killed in Syria, group says

Oct. 1, 2013 10:16 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 3, 2013 10:26 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian refugee was killed in Syria on Tuesday, a local group said.

The Workforce for Palestinians in Syria said that Muhannad Ahmad Abu Jrouh, 33, was killed during government shelling on Daraa refugee camp.

In Yarmouk camp, several buildings, including schools, were damaged during shelling, the group said.

The Syrian army has imposed a blockade on the camp for 77 days in a row, and there has been no electricity or fuel in the camp for months.

On Monday, a group affiliated with the Free Syrian Army detained Lina Rashed Ibrahim, the wife of Mohammad Khader Qudsiya, who works in a security committee of the Syrian army, the group added.

In March, the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria said that over 1,377 Palestinians had been killed in the ongoing Syria conflict, with that number thought to have increased significantly since then.

Last week, a senior Fatah official said that some 250,000 Palestinian refugees have been forced to leave their refugee camps in Syria due to violence in the country.

A staggering 6.2 million Syrians have been torn from their homes -- a number without parallel in any other country and representing nearly a third of Syria's pre-war population of 20.8 million.
