Death and Destruction in Yarmouk: Inside Syria’s largest Palestinian refugee camp

“You have turned it into a death Camp” – the United Nations verdict on the Syrian government. For five years Syrian, Russian and Iranian forces besieged and bombarded Yarmouk, the largest Palestinian camp in Syria.

Yarmouk is located on the southern fringes of the Syrian capital. It’s a densely packed area of streets just five miles from the city centre.
