PFLP-GC to coordinate safe exit for Palestinian refugees in Yarmouk

Nov. 7, 2013 10:11 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 8, 2013 6:02 P.M.)
DAMASCUS (Ma'an) -- The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command has agreed with Syrian authorities to facilitate the exit of all Palestinian refugees who wish to leave Yarmouk camp, the militant organization said in a statement.

The plan for the refugees' exit will be announced at the beginning of the next week, PFLP-GC media official Anwar Raja was quoted as saying in the statement Thursday.

Raja said that the Syrian Ministry of Social Affairs, the Syrian Red Crescent, and the General Authority for Palestinian Refugees had prepared shelters for those who wish to leave Yarmouk, and that the refugees would be provided with the necessary infrastructure for a decent standard of living.

Syria will compensate the refugees for any damages inflicted upon them by the national crisis, the statement said.

The PFLP-GC, a militant organization that has been operating in Syria for decades, has been an active force on the side of the Assad regime since 2012.
