Syria regime bombardment kills 17 civilians in south Damascus

"Their suffering is unimaginable".

Palestinian group Hamas has called for a truce, and the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees says there could be "catastrophic consequences" if fighting around the camp continues.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad this month defeated rebels in their biggest stronghold near Damascus in eastern Ghouta, and has since then focused on ending resistance in several smaller pockets near the Syrian capital.

Monitors have accused the government of carrying out an intense campaign of air raids as well as using barrel bombs, missiles and shells.

The group said in a statement that the shelling resulted in destroying Palestine Hospital; the only hospital in the conflict area capable of receiving the wounded. We call for the immediate granting of safe passage for civilians wishing to leave the camp and surrounding areas and for the evacuation of the injured, the sick and the elderly. "We also urgently need humanitarian access to distribute assistance".

It also urged them to observe the worldwide humanitarian law at all times.

Before the war in Syria broke out in March 2011, about 560,000 Palestinian refugees, who were originally displaced from their homeland during Israel's 1948 establishment, lived in camps, cities and towns across the country.

We have some clarity moving forward now", Allardyce told a news conference ahead of Saturday's league trip to Huddersfield Town . We are riding high and are finishing the season strongly. "That really is all down to the players' efforts really from day one".

At a time when UNRWA is facing an unprecedented financial crisis, Saudi Arabia's contribution represents a formidable message of solidarity towards Palestine refugees.

Fighting in the camp broke out in 2013 as some Palestinian factions sided with the Syrian regime and others with the rebels.

The transfer of "terrorist groups" to rebel-held areas of northwestern Syria would begin on Monday, said the official SANA news agency, which did not name IS jihadists.

"There are some families that have been buried under the rubble and no one is able to retrieve their bodies", said Abu Osama, a resident who fled the camp two days ago to nearby Yalda, joining thousands of others seeking relative safety there since the start of the latest offensive.

The camp houses a large population of Palestinian refugees in Syria, but it has been inhabited by both Palestinians and Syrians.

For its part Hamas movement appealed to the warring parties in Syria not to involve the Palestinian refugee camps in the current events there, Wednesday.

Seven children are reportedly among the dead.
