Hundreds rallied Saturday in the Gaza Strip in support of thousands of fellow Palestinians trapped in Syria's Yarmouk camp, which has been largely overrun by fundamentalist militants.
Hundreds, many waving Hamas flags, took to the streets in the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis in a march organised by the Islamic movement, the de facto power in the coastal enclave.
"We say it for the thousandth time: hands off the Yarmouk camp, hands off our people, hands off the slaughtered, killed and starved," senior Hamas official Salah al-Bardawil told them.
He called on the UN agency for Palestinian refugees UNRWA to use all the influence at its disposal. more
