Syria Terrorists Attack Palestenian Refugee Camp With Mortar Fire In Damascus

Insurgents have attacked a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus as security forces are engaged in clearing the city’s countryside of the presence of such elements, Press TV reports.

Press TV – On Thursday, the Yarmouk refugee camp came under mortar fire from the insurgents, who have been fighting against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The attack was the latest in the unrelenting wave of violence by the insurgents in Syria.

Over the past few days, dozens of insurgents have been killed by the Syrian military in the capital and the western city of Homs.

On Thursday, Kofi Annan decided to quit his mission as the special UN-Arab League envoy to Syria, citing lack of support and increasing militarization of the unrest.

Syrian Foreign Ministry expressed regret over the resignation, stressing Damascus’s commitment to the six-point peace plan negotiated by the envoy.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence, while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the armed insurgents are foreign nationals, mostly from Egypt, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, and Afghanistan.

Western states have been calling for Assad to step down. However, Russia and China are strongly opposed to the Western drive to oust the Syrian president.
