Palestinians trapped as ISIS, Nusra seize most of Syria camp

BEIRUT: Thousands of Palestinian civilians are trapped in Syria's Yarmuk camp, which is besieged by government forces and has been largely overrun by jihadi fighters, an opposition official said Saturday.

The camp in Damascus is now almost completely under the control of ISIS and Al-Qaeda's local branch the Nusra Front, activist group monitoring the war said.

The U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees UNRWA issued an urgent plea for humanitarian access to the area, saying the situation in Yarmuk was a "source of universal shame."
