7 Palestinians killed in Damascus

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Syrian government forces on Monday shelled a bus killing seven Palestinians in Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus, locals said.

A refugee from Yarmouk told Ma'an that forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad had shelled the bus on a road adjacent to the camp, killing seven. He said they were taken to Palestine Hospital and al-Basil Hospital and buried in al-Shuhada cemetery.

Activists told Reuters that Syrian opposition forces had killed seven members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command in Yarmouk on Monday. PFLP-GC has supported Assad's crackdown on the 19-month revolt against his rule, and rebels announced last week they had begun arming Palestinians to wrest control of the camp from the faction.

On Sunday, opposition campaigners said the Syrian army shelled rebel positions inside Yarmouk killing at least 20 people.
