The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) captured a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus, Syria, but some managed to escape. These survivors told media sources the horrific incidents that took place at the hands of the savages.
“In Palestine Street, I saw two members of Daesh playing with a severed head as if it was a football,” explained Amjad Yaaqub, a 16-year-old refugee.
In June 2014, the terrorist group hijacked hashtags on Twitter associated with the World Cup, including #ENG and #Brazil2014. They posted pictures of slaughters and jihadists using heads as soccer balls.
“I saw severed heads,” described Ibrahim Abdel Fatah, 55. “They killed children in front of their parents. We were terrorized. We had heard of their cruelty from the television, but when we saw it ourselves… I can tell you, their reputation is well-deserved.”
Fatah, his wife, and their seven children currently reside at a school “in Tadamun, a southeastern district of the Syrian capital held by the army.” Anwar Abdel Hadi, an official of the Palestine Liberation Organization in Damascus, told AFP that “500 families, or about 2,500 people,” fled the refugee camp. The school in Tadamun contains 98 people, including 40 children.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency pleaded with Syria to allow humanitarian aid to the camp even before the ISIS attack. The agency said hundreds already “died from malnutrition and lack of medicine supplies.” It is only going to get worse now that ISIS is in charge.
“IS stole all food stores and medicines in Yarmouk camp that was reserved for Palestinian civilians,” said Pierre Krähenbühl, the commissioner general of the agency. “The two main hospitals in the area have stopped working because of lack of medical equipment. There’s no electricity in these areas.”
