UN: Palestinians in Syrian camp are 'traumatized' 02/25/14
February 25, 2014
DAMASCUS— The chief of the United Nations relief agency supporting Palestinian refugees says he's "deeply disturbed and shaken" by the despair and destruction he's seen in a besieged camp in the Syrian capital.
Filippo Grandi says the Palestinian refugees he spoke to in Yarmouk yesterday were "traumatized by what they have lived through."
And many need food and medical treatment immediately. The U.N. says more than 100 people have died in Yarmouk since mid-2013 of illnesses exacerbated by hunger.
