Damascus, 10 Rabi’ul Akhir 1437/20 January 2016 (MINA) – The Action group for Palestinians in Syria reported that 184 Palestinian refugees, including 21 children, in al-Yarmouk camp in Syria died due to the siege and shortage of health care.

In a report on Tuesday, the Action Group pointed out that the number of the victims of the siege included 123 males and 61 females, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

The report revealed that the Yarmouk refugee camp lacks life necessities as well as medications and foodstuff including milk for the children, which badly affected its residents at the psychological and health levels.

The siege, which has been imposed by the Syrian regime and its allies for 919 days, made some refugees search for food in garbage containers and stand in long queues waiting for small amounts of food supplies, the report highlighted.(T/P008/R07)
