Palestinian factions’ alliance condemns PLO climb-down on situation in Yarmouk

Damascus, SANA- The Palestinian Factions’ Alliance condemned on Sunday the contradictory statements of the Palestine Liberation Organization(PLO) about the latest events in Yarmouk Camp and the alliance retracting earlier statements about its coordination with Syrian government in the fight against ISIS.

Secretary of the Palestinian Factions Alliance Khaled Abdul-Majeed said in a statement that the alliance “was surprised by the PLO statement in Ramallah announcing its rejection of being a part of any armed struggle in the camp,” considering it a “despicable retraction from what has been agreed.”

He hinted that the PLO leadership received calls from regional powers which exerted pressure on the organization to backtrack from earlier stances while Hamas movement announced itself out of any military operation that targets the Camp.

The PLO withdrawing its stance prompted the alliance factions to coordinate with the Syrian government to defend the camp with logistical support from the Syrian Arab Army which is chasing ISIS members in the areas close to the camp, he added.

Member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Ahmad Majdalani said during a press conference held few days ago in Damascus that coordination and cooperation will continue between the Syrian and the Palestinians who will take joint decisions to recover the camp from terrorists.

Two weeks ago, terrorists from ISIS had overrun Yarmouk camp aided by “Jabhat al-Nusra” to commit more crimes against residents.
