After the blatant violations of Human and Women rights Assad’s gangs have been committing throughout Syria for the past year, it surely is not Syrians only who are being victimized. Palestinians are being targeted throughout the revolution since the very beginning, but Bashar Al Assad’s reiterated blabber of “we are pro-resistance and pro-Palestine plight” gradually led to the mere neglect of Palestinians being tortured in Assad’s dungeons, slaughtered by his Shabiha (thugs), or killed by his security forces or army.

Since the very beginning of the revolution, Al Raml Janoubi camp in the coastal city of Lattakia, which is a residence for Palestinian refugees, has been shelled by heavy arms and has thus nearly been emptied from its residents. An estimated 10,000 Palestinians refugees used to live in this district in Lattakia, but now that its infrastructure got severely damaged because of the shelling, most of its residents fled to neighboring districts or towns. This video has been taken on the 14th of August, 2011, which highlights the beginning of the harshest most bloody offensive on this camp.

Palestinians haven’t only been victims of indiscriminate shelling similar to the one I’ve mentioned above but also have fallen victims to torture and to forced disappearances. Translated from the facebook page of “Palestinians in the dungeons of the Syrian regime”, the recorded names and dates of Palestinian detainees begin as follows:

Palestinians in Syria have also been victims of slaughter by Shabiha (thugs) in the latest offensive carried out last week on Karm Al Zaytoun district in Homs.

Yesterday occurred the latest attack on Palestinians. Accordging to SANA TV (Syrian regime’s state TV), two “terrorists” were killed as a booby-trapped car they were driving blew up in a Palestinian refugee camp in a suburb of Damascus. It said the blast in Yarmouk camp on Saturday, the same day as authorities said 27 people were killed in two suspected car bombings in central Damascus, also damaged parked cars and shattered windows of nearby buildings. SANA gave no further details. Just note that Yarmouk camp is the largest camp in Syria, with more than 500,000 Palestinian refugees living here. (Source is: Naharet news).

Palestinians should not be neglected throughout this plight we’re going through. Our revolution is a revolution for all those living within the Syrian lands. The pain is tantamount whether the victim is Syrian or Palestinian. We are all being tortured under the same whip, in the same dungeons, and on the same ground.
