The Palestinian Action Group for Palestinians of Syria yesterday condemned the Assad Syrian for not allowing the camp's residents to remove the dead bodies from under the rubble of houses destroyed by regime shelling.

In a statement the group called on the international community and human rights organisations to intervene and put pressure on the Syrian regime to allow Palestinians families to remove the bodies from under the rubble of their homes in the camp.

The group said more than 80 bodies were still under the rubble of destroyed houses, noting that the bodies belonged to civilians as well as an unspecified number of Daesh fighters, noting that a majority of the bodies of the regime's fighters had been removed.
