Islamic State sniper shoots and kills 13-year-old “Palestinian” girl trying to escape “refugee camp”
The Yarmouk “refugee camp” was established in 1948, so by 2015, it isn’t a refugee camp at all. It’s a neighborhood, as this article calls it, or even a city unto itself. But it is still called a “refugee camp” because the UN and the Muslim countries want to keep alive the idea of “Palestinian” “refugees” so that they can use them as supposed evidence of supposed Israeli wrongdoing. Never before in history has refugee status been passed down to children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren. But that’s the depth of the Muslim states’ hatred for Israel: none of them would give the “Palestinians” citizenship, even though there is no ethnic difference between them and the neighboring Arabs, except Jordan.
Also, where is the world’s outcry against this violence against the “Palestinians”? Or does the world “human rights community” only wring its hands over the “Palestinians” when it wants to bash Israel?
“Isis sniper ‘shoots dead 13-year-old Palestinian girl trying to escape Syrian refugee camp,’” Independent, April 13, 2015:
A 13-year-old girl has been shot dead by Isis snipers as she tried to flee a besieged refugee camp in Syria, Palestinian militants have claimed.
The child, named as Zaynab Daghastani, was reportedly killed on Tuesday outside her home in Yarmouk, which was overrun by Isis at the end of last month.
Militants entered an apartment building and apprehended the girl, Al Masdar News reported, and she was later shot dead by a sniper outside her home. Around 2,000 people have been evacuated since Isis seized control of large parts of the camp More than 2,000 people have been evacuated since Isis seized control of large parts of the camp
The website cited sources from Palestinian militant group Fatah Al-Intifada, which is fighting Isis alongside the Palestine Liberation Army and other armed factions, and the account could not be confirmed.
The International Business Times reported that Zaynab had been trying to escape the camp with her family, making for safety in the nearby district of Yelda.
Charity workers from the Jafra Foundation estimated that 2,500 families have fled so far to avoid street fighting and bombardment.
Militants with the so-called Islamic State have been backed by rivals Jabhat al-Nusra in efforts to control Yarmouk, which is home to around 18,000 Palestinians.
Their takeover prompted a series of air strikes by forces loyal to the Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, and United Nations officials have described the humanitarian situation as “beyond inhumane”.
Isis has been accused of beheading captives and murdering and endangering the lives of civilians in Yarmouk.
Pierre Krahenbuhl, head of UN Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA, said called on all sides to respect the “beleaguered” civilians trapped inside.
“They have suffered untold indignities and I shall continue to work today to assist those who wish to temporarily leave in safety,” he added. “At the same time, we need to look at ways to provide humanitarian assistance to the civilians inside Yarmouk.”
Control of the camp has given Isis its first foothold in the Syrian capital of Damascus, adding another level of misery to residents who have already survived a two-year government siege, starvation and disease.
