Activists: Ambush by Syrian Gov’t Forces Targets 30 Yarmouk Residents on Way to Northern Syria

At least 30 persons from Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, south of Damascus, were trapped in an ambush set by the Syrian government forces, on their way to opposition-held zones in northern Syria. They were detained in cooperation with smugglers, according to activists.

The same sources said the 30 arrestees, who appear in a live footage circulated on social media after they were forced out of Yarmouk Camp along with ISIS members, got in touch with smugglers in an attempt to safely exit Teloul AlSafa, in the Syrian desert, and seek shelter in opposition-run zones north of Syria.

The activists added that the smugglers in Kalaat AlMadiq in Hama held contacts with the government-run Branch 215 to make arrangements for the smuggling procedures.

Shortly after the civilians reached Hama, on way to northern Syria, they were dragged by the Syrian government forces to Branch 215. The arrestees were released sometime later after they were secretly poisoned in custody. One of them was pronounced dead at a Turkish hospital shortly after.

Over recent years, the families of hundreds of Palestinian refugees secretly held in Syrian state jails have been blackmailed over their appeals for information. Scores of families have paid large sums of money to brokers, crooked lawyers, or government officials to get pieces of information about the whereabouts of their missing relatives or to push for their release.
