PLO delegation flies to Syria for talks
A delegation of the umbrella Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) on Monday headed for Syria to check on the conditions of Palestinian refugees in the war-torn country.

The delegation is expected to meet Syrian regime officials and representatives of Palestinian factions during the visit, delegation member Wasel Abu Yusuf told Anadolu Agency.

The visit aims to “discuss the situation of the Palestinian refugees in general and the conditions in the Yarmouk Refugee camp [near Damascus] in particular, “Abu Yusuf said.

Talks will also tackle Syrian-Palestinian relations and “ways of neutralizing Palestinian refugees from the ongoing conflict in Syria", he said.

The Yarmouk camp is the largest for Palestinian refugees in Syria which the UN said suffers from total destruction.

In mid-April, Syrian regime forces pounded the Yarmouk camp to expel the Daesh terrorist group from the area.
