Palestinian Refugee in Germany Allegedly Involved in Syria War Crimes

A new report published by Zaman AlWasl daily has revealed the involvement of Palestinian refugee Mahmoud Arnaout, born in 1974, in war crimes against Palestinian refugees in Yarmouk Camp, where he had previously been taking shelter.

The son of a so-called Fakhri and Layla Hamarna, Mahmoud is currently living in Womrs city, in the German province of Rheinland-Pfalz, to which he fled in 2018.

Zaman AlWasl has learned that the refugee had worked as a water and gas salesman and a taxi driver before the outburst of the conflict in Syria. He was one of the first persons to join the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC), before he moved to the Free Palestine Movement, affiliated with the Syrian regime.

He had lately appeared in a video released by Sputnik agency and dating back to May 24, 2018.

Probe findings prove his involvement in regime assaults and strikes targeting Yarmouk Camp. In a video, Mahmoud is seen with a so-called Mofeq AlDaouah while gearing up for an infiltration into Yarmouk. They appear in other assaults and shootouts alongside pro-government militias.

Last month, Zaman AlWasl newspaper said Palestinian refugee Mofeq AlDaouah, a military commander at the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine General Command (PFLP-GC), affiliated with the Syrian regime, has been accused of involvement in rape crimes against women in Yarmouk Camp and in a massacre against civilians at Ali AlWahsh checkpoint.

He is also held accountable for unleashing an RPG-7 missile targeting civilians during aid distribution in late March 2014 in retaliation for the death of his relative in clashes with opposition outfits in Yarmouk Camp. At least 17 people were killed and dozens injured in the attack.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, an eyewitness confirmed his willingness to deliver his testimony about Moufeq’s crimes before courts and concerned judicial bodies.

Another witness said Moufeq had been a commander at the Free Palestine Movement, affiliated with the Syrian government, adding that he had been involved in assaults on Yarmouk Camp and bombardment of civilian structures.

Scores of Palestinian youths have been forced to join pro-government battalions in Syria. Those who refuse forced conscription are often subjected to manhunt and imprisonment. Thousands of young men have fled the country in the hunt for a safer shelter.
