Liveblogging events in Syria Friday, The Guardian [spit] reported:

Whole neighbourhoods have been destroyed in the last 24 hours in the bombardment of the Yarmouk Palestinian camp [in Damascus], according to an activist in the area.

Speaking to the Guardian, Mahmoud Nasar, said:

Since last night Yarmouk has become a target for Syria military rockets. They bombed Yarmouk from Qassum mountain. There are a lot of casualties because it was a civilian neighbourhood that was bombed. We have the names of ten people who died, and around 70 or 75 wounded. All of them are civilians.

In a call interrupted by the sound of a shell landing, he added: “We have never seen shelling like this before. They used very big mortars. I saw one of the explosions, it was very very strong. A building with two floors came down.”

Nasar speculated that the government was trying to clear the area to attack Free Syrian Army positons in neighbouring districts.

I can assure your that there are no Free Syrian Army soldiers in Yarmouk.

The regime targeted Yarmouk to send a message to the Palestinian refugees and Syrians that there is no safe place – and we can get you where ever you are.

Today about 25 bombs have landed on Yarmouk and have destroyed whole neighbourhoods. They bombed Ja’ouneh Street [scene of shelling of last month].

We think the regime wants to clear this neighbourhood between Yarmouk and Tadamon [to the north-east]. We are talking about 1km [square], because the Free Syrian Army is very strong in Tadamon and Hajar al-Aswad [to the south see map bellow]. They want to use Yarmouk.

When the bombs and rockets came down all the houses in Yarmouk shook.


Anyone hear about this, i'd especially like to see how the many Palestinian solidarity groups reacted to this news.
