Syrian planes attack mosque in Yarmouk Palestinian camp

A mosque in the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk in southern Damascus that was sheltering some 600 refugees from neighbouring districts has been attacked from the air and hit by at least one rocket, and there are reports of many casualties.

Yarmouk is a stronghold of the pro-Assad Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which has been fighting the rebels, who have themselves had many Palestinians fighting alongside them.

Yesterday it was reported the PFLP military commander Ahmed Jibril had fled the camp with his son for Tartous, a stronghold of Bashar al-Assad’s Alawite minority.

According to activists over 150 people were killed today by forces loyal to president Assad

Abbas : stop the shelling

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on Sunday for an “immediate halt” to the shelling of the Palestinian camps in Damascus after an air strikes on the Yarmouk Refugee camp in Damascus reportedly killed at least 20 civilians.

“We call on the warring sides in Syria to spare the Palestinian people and their camps in Syria,” he said in a statement carried by official Palestinian news agency WAFA, adding that bombing of the refugee camps “must be stopped immediately.”

“We also call on the international community to take immediate action to provide protection to our people in Syria,” Abbas said, adding that the Palestinians were “not involved” in the conflict.

Sunday’s air strikes on Yarmouk were the first against Palestinian refugee camps in Syria, which have long been strongholds of militant groups closely allied with Damascus.

Yarmouk is home to more than 112,000 Palestinians. According to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), there are about 486,000 Palestine refugees living in nine official and three unofficial camps across Syria.

    So burning Quran by westerners enraged muslims acrros the world and they attacked embassies and killed many. But attacking Mosques by Syrians regime do not constitute any rage on the muslims in the world? where are they hiding now? or could it be that those who were protesting egyptian making some dumb movie about Prophet mohamed were incited by iran and hezbollah i suppose. otherwise where are these faithfull followers of Islam???

      Western puppets are the only ones trying to suppress the massive uprisings. Puppet leaders are not true of faith. You must open your blind eyes and see the Muslim masses are up in arms.

        nagy_michael2 made a good point . We have seen many mosque demolished in Syria by the Iranian majoosis and the Alawites with the help of hezbushaitan. I think you have seen them inside the mosque with their shoes on, bullet hole in the Quran,burnt Quran, delibarate shelling on the mosque etc. He is comparing these crimes with that Movie incident  and the degree of outrage between the two incident.

        This mosque attack was still going on while some Muslims were protesting ,burning embassy in Libya and Killed the ambassader. Thats not all rather many parts of the world similar protest were organized. Now the strong point is : Who are these people who killed the US ambassador and who are those people organizing world wide violent protest ? And where are the rage by this very same people against the crime in Syria? So who are they? Do you see the dirty game in the name of Islam?

        The clear math is here and I hope you will understand the political game

          our outrage is directed at supporting the FSA, as well as denouncing the syrian regime at their embassies. The passion is definately there.

          The Syrian embassy in Canberra has become one of several Syrian consulates to be attacked around the world.
          The attack on the embassy comes as Russia and China vetoed a UN Security Council resolution calling on Syrian president Bashar al-Assad to stand down.
          A group of up to 40 men stormed the embassy in the southern Canberra suburb of O’Malley about 9:30pm (AEDT).
          Once inside, they smashed everything in sight on the ground floor of the building.
          Superintendent Mick Calatzis says three embassy staff took refuge in the basement.
          “It was obviously not a pretty sight,” he said.

      You have a good point. Those who showed those phony enrage are indeed organized by Iran , Asad regime and hezbushaitan in order to divert the attention of the people from the massive crime in Syria by these majoosis. The people who were enraged and vandalize embassies and killed the ambassador are certainly not enraged  by the atrocities committed by the Syrian regime Iran and hezbushaitan. Thats the ultimate proof that those phony protest and destruction was indeed by the culprit in the name of Islam shedding crocodile tears against that movie.

        wargame1 i totally agree with you and certainly Al Qaada doesn’t seem a bit interested in organizing anything against Syria and Iran. those affiliates of Al Qaada who are fighting syrian army are on their own missions and volunteer more like it. otherwise how could Al Qaada organize such mass demonstrations across the world after the dumb movie about Prophet Mohamed yet they had two years with the regime killing many innocent yet no one organized on lousy protest.. After the movie was made by the Copt in california. Iran kept showing over and over in trying to incite many muslims across the world. Yet Iran and even Turkey showed movies mocking Christ in many theaters and they seemed okay with it. Suddenly Iran and Hezbollah want to protect their so called muslims beliefs as if they really believe wholeheartdly in Prophet Mohamed. They could careless about him and a proof of it they never celeberate/mourn prophet mohamed but its okay to keep Ashura on yearly basis and they beat the crap out of themselves for some dumb ass reasons.
